$5.1M Series A Funding
On March 3, 2014 Speek, a startup focusing on improving conference calling utilizing WebRTC, announced that it has received $5.1M in Series A funding. With the additional funding, Speek will focus on adding features that appeal to these users, notes Boice, like added security controls, collaboration features for editing a document together, tools to share slideshows, and integrations with other enterprise-level products, like Salesforce. The company will also be looking to expand its marketing reach and sales team, with the latter going from just a few users to a dozen in the coming year or so.
Speek is super simple, free and visual conference calling. Speek uses a personal or business link (i.e., speek.com/YourName) instead of a phone number and PIN for conference calls. Participants click the Speek link to start or join a call from their phone, web or mobile browser. You can see who’s joined, who’s talking, share files, use call controls and more.
