Urban Airship Names Intel as Series C Investor & Inks a Business Agreement, Too

It’s another exciting week here at Urban Airship. I’m at the Intel Capital CEO Summit where we have just announced Intel Capital’s participation in our series C investment announced last week along with Salesforce.com, Verizon, Foundry Group and True Ventures.

And I had the good luck to be interviewed here at the event by Jon Fortt who covers technology for CNBC.

As we’ve built Urban Airship we’ve been thinking about ways we can really advance the platform– not only with new features– but also to find ways to push deeper into the devices themselves. Along with this investment we’re announcing a business collaboration with Intel’s Software & Services Group.

This is the first of many such collaborations with handset OEM’s, chip makers and hardware manufacturers. The Urban Airship platform continues to gain momentum and relevance both by adding new features but also by providing a complete mobile platform embedded directly into devices. We could not be more excited.
