More in Productivity
Catch.com announced that it has raised $7 million in Series A funding led by Excel Venture Management. Catch.com will use the new financing to further accelerate the rapid growth of its secure notes apps built on its personal content management system for smartphones. Founded in 2008, San Francisco-based Catch.com has more than 13 million downloads on Android phones alone across its range of mobile apps, including Catch Notes, Compass and AK Notepad. Its popular flagship product Catch Notes is the easiest and quickest way to capture, organize and sync notes, images, sounds or ideas throughout the day. “Excel is an excellent partner for us as they have a tremendous amount of success in developing innovative startups with big ideas,” said Steve Brown, CEO of Catch.com. “We’re looking forward to working with them at a strategic level to expand our platform that captures and organizes anything you want to keep and remember.” Catch Notes is built on the Catch.com personal content management system, which uses mobile geo-location to organize and find notes by location and map addresses sent securely from a mobile device. With an open API and open source examples that facilitate the development of a wide range of personal data capture applications, the Catch.com platform is being integrated by developers globally into leading apps, such as Free Dictionary, BBC News, DailyHoroscope and Favorite Recipes. “The technology really piqued our interest because it is a disruptive platform driven by an outstanding management team,” said Juan Enriquez, managing director of Excel and Catch.com board member.
