Convoq set for reboot

With the web-conferencing space getting tighter by the day, we can expect few fallouts. And it is rumored that the first major change in directions comes from Convoq, which provides Flash-based live chat and web conferencing capabilities aimed primarily at Salesforce customers. Convoq is set to give up its existing product mix and work towards a new idea related in the “consumer social networking” space. Also as part of the change, Convoq has a new CEO, Steve Brand.

Convoq till date has raised $30.4 million from its 3 rounds of funding. Convoq had secured $13 million in its third round of funding in January 2006. The funding round was led by Bay Partners and also participated by investors from previous its rounds including North Bridge Venture Partners and Polaris Venture Partners.
