Droplr recently raised another $400,000 to grow its team and accelerate its outbound sales efforts, says Gray Skinner, the Bend startup’s CEO. Gray described the round as a bridge between Droplr’s initial seed round (which was about $850,000) and a potential Series A.
“We’re planning to grow our team from 10 to 15, and do more outbound sales to the thousands of companies we haven’t gone after before,” he says.
This recent round was lead by Bend-based Cascade Angels, who invested another $150,000 in the startup. Inspiration Ventures, out of Burlingame, Calif., invested $100,000. Seven Peaks Ventures, also from Bend, and a group of individuals from Nashville filled out the rest.
The company makes sharing screen shots and files easier. Earlier this year, the startup announced an integration with Slack to do just that. Most recently, Gray says the startup has forged a partnership with Cisco. Droplr is building an integration for Cisco’s own communication platform, Spark, and then looking to pursue channel sales via relationships with Cisco’s enterprise clients.
