Atlanta startup is reimagining the way companies use texting to communicate with customers; grows 320% in 2021
February 10, 2022
ATLANTA, Georgia—Voxie, an innovative platform helping businesses grow through the use of conversational texting and automation, today announced it has extended its Series A funding with a $25 million pre-emptive investment round led by technology veteran and entrepreneur Tom Noonan. Noonan, who founded Internet Security Systems, Endgame, and TechOperators, is currently a member of the Board of Directors at ICE/NYSE.
Voxie was launched in 2019 to enable retailers, service businesses, restaurant chains and others to communicate via text with their customers at scale, developing relationships that result in increased revenue and stronger customer loyalty. Texting is quickly replacing email as the go-to channel for innovative marketers due to its unprecedented performance of 98% open rates and 30% click-through rates. Voxie distinguishes itself from traditional one-way texting platforms by driving personalized, AI-powered two-way text conversations and then automating up to 95% of the engagements while delivering a treasure trove of first party conversational data its customers can use to further personalize and engage across all channels. The typical Voxie customer experiences greater than 20 times return on investment within 30 days of go-live.
Voxie’s unique approach has resulted in explosive growth and demand for its products. The company’s $6.7 million Series A round in January 2021 was led by Noro Moseley Partners with additional participation from Atlanta entrepreneurs Wain Kellum, Kyle Porter, David Cummings and Fred Castellucci—as well as Circadian Ventures and Engage Ventures. All investors participated in the current extension round.
“I’m incredibly excited to partner with Bogdan and the Voxie team,” said Tom Noonan. “Voxie is already the category leader in the white-hot conversational text market and is poised for explosive growth as businesses increasingly depend upon personalized, automated conversations at scale to enhance their brand perception and create loyal, repeat customers that will continue to frequent their businesses,” he added.
“We are ecstatic about the explosive results our platform continues to deliver from some of the world’s fastest growing and most recognized brands,” said Bogdan Constantin, Voxie founder and CEO. “We’re thrilled to have Tom help us lead the charge as we build the global leader in conversational texting and automation. We’re doubling down on our commitment to build the best company to work for and plan to use our new funding to accelerate our rocketship’s growth across every department and functional area by hiring championship level talent,” he added.
Voxie is headquartered in Atlanta with additional hubs in Denver and Boston. The company intends to use these funds to expand its customer success, product, engineering, and sales and marketing teams to capitalize on the exceptional demand it has experienced within the consumer enterprise space.
