Millions of devices, new partnerships, and a $2 million seed round led by Accel
Radar is the location platform for mobile apps. With Radar, developers can add location context and tracking to their apps with just a few lines of code.
Since launching in February, we've grown significantly. Radar is now installed on millions of devices, we're processing billions of locations per year, and we've built integrations with mParticle, Segment, Braze, Yext, and Facebook, with more partnerships coming soon.
Today, we're thrilled to announce that we've raised a $2 million seed round led by Jake Flomenberg at Accel, with participation from Expa, Fuel Capital, Specialized Types, and angels including Greg Brockman (CTO at OpenAI, previously CTO at Stripe), Mike Katz (CEO at mParticle), Mike Yavonditte (CEO at Yieldmo), Brian Goldfarb (CMO at Splunk, previously at Salesforce, Google, and Microsoft), and Nitesh Banta (CEO at B12).
We'll use this funding to continue to grow and invest in our mission: helping companies build better products and make better decisions with location data.
We believe that location is the future of mobile. Alas, building with location is still too hard. Developers must build accurate, efficient, reliable, cross-platform location data collection, then store, add context to, analyze, and act on that data.
Stripe has solved payments for developers, Twilio has solved communications for developers, and so on. But before Radar, nobody had solved location for developers.
Indeed, most players in the location space are ad tech companies masquerading as "location intelligence" companies. By building a truly great developer platform, by empowering engineering, product, and growth teams, and by putting privacy and user experience first, Radar is changing the game.
We couldn't be more excited to continue this journey. If you're an engineer that wants to build a category-defining developer platform in NYC, we'd love for you to join our team. If you want to stay in the loop, follow us on Twitter @radarlabs.
Thanks to all of our amazing customers, partners, advisors, and investors that have supported us so far.
We're just getting started. Let's go!
