YFonGlobal white-label SN gets $1.8 million; HipCricket mobile marketing gets $2 million

YFonGlobal: That is one strange name for a company trying to sell white-label SocialNetworking solution. Coming to the real point YFonGlobal today announced that it has raised $1.8 million in funding from angel investors. YFonGlobal is planning to use the additional funding  to expand sales and marketing of their Wyndstorm social network software. Currently YFonGlobal doesn’t seem to offer an on-demand kind of setup for the white label solution. Wyndstorm comes packaged with all the white-label SN buzzwords including billing & payment processing for downloaded content, click-to-call a buddy, and management of viral marketing campaigns…….. There are strong overtones of VoIP and messaging all over the site that does send confusing signals. As for competition KickApps, Ning, FiveAcross are just few to deal with.


HipCricket –  The Bellevue, WA based mobile marketing startup today announced that it has raised additional $2 million in funding as part of its final tranche of Series A  funding. Angel investors, Broadmark Capital, and a European investment group participated in the investment round. HipCricket has over 100 customers including  including Clear Channel Radio, Premiere Radio Networks, ABC, NBC, Cox Radio,……..Since I am not big into creative mobile marketing I would avoid commenting any further.
