Firespotter Labs today announced it has raised $15 million in Series B financing led by Andreessen Horowitz, with participation by prior investor Google Ventures.
Blake Krikorian, co-founder and former CEO of Sling Media, joins Wesley Chan, partner at Google Ventures, and Craig Walker, chairman, CEO and co-founder of Firespotter Labs, on the board.
The investment will accelerate the development and expansion of Firespotter’s most recently released project, an easy-to-use video conference call product called UberConference. Other Firespotter Labs apps include Nosh, NoshList and Jotly.
Walker previously created GrandCentral, which in 2007 was acquired and turned into Google Voice. Before that he was CEO of Dialpad Communications, which was acquired in 2005 and became Yahoo Voice.
“Craig is an accomplished serial entrepreneur in the communications industry, and he and his team are uniquely positioned to build the next generation of communications services,” said Krikorian. “The communications space is changing dramatically and we’re excited to be working with Firespotter to usher in those changes.”
