Enterprise mobile startup DoubleDutch has raised $2 million in Series A funding, the company is reporting today, in a round led by Bullpen Capital and including Mike Maples’ Floodgate Fund, as well as Mint.com founder Aaron Patzer and YouTube co-founder Jawed Karim. The funding follows the company’s previous raise of $1.2 million a year ago, led by Lightbank.
The startup, which makes mobile productivity applications for business customers, currently has two products on the market: Hive and Flock. The former, a CRM engagement app, lets employees update their CRM system on the go using an attractive touch-based interface for entering things like deal stage, size, and personal notes, and it even records location as one of the elements that can be captured. The product was designed with a mobile-first mindset, using things like touchable sliders which can be dragged adjust numbers related to the deal. The data created in the app can also be synced back to the company’s in-house CRM system, like Salesforce, for example.
Meanwhile, Flock is a white label platform that allows companies to build a social, branded app for their events, tradeshows or conferences.
DoubleDutch, which was founded in March 2010, is currently profitable, and is expecting revenues of $5 million. Last year, the company noted that it was serving customers including Cisco, HP, Gannett, TED and Adobe. Other customers include Lowe’s, RightNow, UBM, CDW, IDG, and Roche.
The company is now hiring (“mobile like a fox“) in San Francisco, hoping to double staff to 25 by year-end. Also in the works? More apps, of course.
