Mountain View, Calif. – Jibe Mobile, a Mountain View-based developer of cloud-based communications technology, said on Wednesday it has raised $8.3 million in a new round of funding.
Vodafone Ventures, Japanese game developer MTI and other investors took part in the round, which the company will use to build its platform that it says will enable developers to rapidly incorporate rich communications – like video chat and real-time gaming – into mobile apps.
“There is no doubt that rich communications is becoming an increasingly important part of the consumer mobile experience,” said co-founder and CEO Amir Sarhangi. “Jibe’s mission is to make carrier-grade communications simple and accessible for the global market.”
