Break out the champagne and beer (or your drink of choice). It’s a day of celebration here at Bitbar as we can finally announce that we’ve completed a $3 million financing round!
With this investment, we now have the awesome opportunity to expand our mobile developer tools beyond Android, iOS and HTML5, AND beyond just testing. Exciting stuff!
A couple of weeks ago, we blogged about the renaissance of the mobile developer. It’s all about you – the developers who are adding to your toolboxes and sharpening your skills, especially to make testing part of your responsibilities.
For this very reason, we have focused on building tools for developers rather than for traditional testers. The success of this strategy is evident in the growth we’ve seen as 40 percent more of you are joining us each month.
And now we’re on our way to providing a fully integrated development, testing and deployment experience for all relevant mobile platforms
We’re extremely grateful to Creathor Venture of Frankfurt, which led this round, as well as DFJ Esprit (London), Finnvera Venture Capital (Finland), Qualcomm Incorporated/Qualcomm Ventures and TEKES (Finland) financing.
Look below to read what a couple of our investors have to say about our technology and the market. Then join us in a toast to celebrate our next chapter!
