1World Online, a leading consumer intelligence company, announced today that it achieved its goals for 2013 in closing $1.5 million in Series A financing in December, extending its market-leading platform with new features and operating system support over the last few weeks and launching new partners throughout the second half of 2013.
1World closed an over-subscribed $1.5M Series A round, which included both noted angel and institutional investors in early December 2013. The funding will accelerate the company’s maturation, as well as to solidify its role as a leading consumer intelligence source.
“Building on our momentum, we will use this new financing to put more resources into our products and services, support our new customer wins and begin the expansion into new markets, “ said Alex Fedosseev, CEO and co-founder of 1World Online.
