Polish startup Prowly, which has developed software that enables PR professionals to coordinate their marketing campaigns, has announced that they have hauled in $1.1 million in a pre-Series A round that includes participation by Internet Ventures FIZ (managed by Private Equity Managers Group) and Polish digital marketing agency Bluerank.
Boosted by this latest funding, the startup announces that they will use it to “spread their wings internationally and redefine what’s possible in the global PR SaaS market”. This round represents a significant step up from the $75,000 that they had previously obtained from the Ventures Hub incubator, through IQ Partners’ fund portfolio. The startup reports that they used that funding to build a beta version of their service, which led to their first paying customers.
We originally profiled Prowly back in November, so you should be sure to head there if you are looking for much more information about this startup, which launched in 2013. In addition to what we posted earlier, we have learned that this startup has already expanded beyond Poland, claiming clients from the United States, United Kingdom, and Belgium.
