Nimble Raises $1M for Fresh CRM Solution
Nimble announced it has received $1 million in seed funding from Google Ventures and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, alongside other venture capitalists including Jason Calacanis, Don Dodge and Dharmesh Shah. Today Nimble has a user base of over 25,000 workers employed by about 2,700 different companies, which can be considered as quite an achievement considering it’s been around for less than two years.
“The year 2011 has been a landmark year for Nimble,” said Jon Ferrara, the CEO of Nimble who also co-founded GoldMine. “When we introduced Nimble, we promised our customers a new way of doing social business by empowering them to listen, engage, embrace, enchant, and grow their customer relationships. We delivered on that promise with a revolutionary CRM platform where small- to medium-sized businesses can easily transform their social communities into customers for life.”
Nimble built an entirely new CRM platform that doesn’t incorporate modern elements in a legacy solution, but is rather built entirely on the advantages of the latest trends in enterprise IT. The solution combines a lot of social components with sales and marketing features optimized for the former ones, all wrapped as a cloud-based service. The concept in and of itself is attractive, and it appears that Nimble did a good job with the execution part as well.
We’ve covered the startup at the 2011 DEMO conference, where it received the coveted DEMO God award. The CRM provider has a number of other titles including a Gartner Cool Vendor in the social software space, as well as a number of recent achievements.
In November Nimble announced that it’s expanding to Europe thanks to an extensive network of partnership, in hopes of tapping the momentum it has built up so effectively overseas as well. A sizable portion of its customers are based in the continent already.
