Yap Incorporated is pleased to announce that it has secured $6.5 million in Series A financing. Led by SunBridge Partners, the round also features participation by Harbert Venture Partners, Pittco Capital Partners, and existing individual investors. Yap will use the capital to fuel expansion of its business and accelerate its advanced research and development initiatives. As part of the round, partners from SunBridge and Harbert are joining Yap's Board of Directors, with Timothy Biltz continuing to serve as Chairman of the Board. "Yap is truly a leader in freeform speech recognition and driving innovation in the mobile user experience," said Paul Grim, General Partner at SunBridge Partners. "It is increasingly clear that the fastest, easiest, and safest way to interact with services on a mobile device is using your voice, and Yap makes this both possible and intuitive. We are excited to help them deliver on a vision in which carriers, device makers, and web portals are all able to provide an entirely new experience for their users." [click heading for more]
www.getdesign.in - My periodic blog exploring the world of business, experience design and interaction, with a smattering of gadgetry and social media. A world where business, people and technology meet.
Let's Fix Things: For over two decades I've been consulting in Communications Design: Everything from business strategy and processes, through to technology, interaction and customer experience. The thoughts here are my own, not necessarily that of my employer.
I have a penchant for spotting patterns and fixing broken user and customer experiences. Even my Bumblebee project hasn't escaped - I've been using Six Sigma techniques to study and predict their behaviour patterns. ☺
