FullContact raises $10M to continue connecting people

Denver-based startup FullContact just updated its address book-coordinating apps for iOS and Gmail. The progress helped it raise a new $10 million round of funding led by Baird Capital and Foundry Group with support from participation from Blue Note Ventures and 500 Startups. In all, the contact management software company has now raised nearly $20 million.

The FullContact address books apps are designed to coordinate users' contacts across their email accounts, social media platforms as well as their devices. "The genesis of the FullContact address book was on the web, and the web version is still the central hub for working with your FullContact account," says Brad McCarty. "However, FullContact for iOS brings the power of the address book to your iPhone or iPad via a native application."

"We absolutely plan to be on more platforms, and Windows-based systems make sense as an eventual area of expansion for us," McCarty says. Already the company is developing applications for Mac and for Android-based systems.

FullContact launched in 2010, and the current suite of apps launched out of private beta in 201. The company's APIs has been available to developers since 2012.

The company appears to be on the right track with the new products. "Eighteen months ago, FullContact employed 22 people," McCarty says. "Currently there are 53 employees however that number is likely to reach 75 employees in the next 12 months."

The new round of financing will help the company each those goals. As part of the funding Baird's Benedict Rocchio will join FullContact's board. "We're very excited to add Benedict and Baird Capital to the FullContact board and receive the long-term support from a great financial institution," says Bart Lorang, FullContact CEO.
