Lumavate Secures $2.5M in Seed Funding and Announces Partner Program

CARMEL, Ind.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lumavate, the leading enterprise platform for developing progressive web
apps (PWAs) at scale, today announced its raise of $2.5 million in seed
funding. The round included participation from Allos Ventures, Collina
Ventures, Don Brown, Elevate Ventures, 4G Ventures, and Jupiter Peak.
This funding will allow Lumavate to grow its product, sales and
marketing teams, as well as further develop its offering to meet the
needs of numerous industries.

The Lumavate platform capitalizes on the transition from native mobile
apps to PWAs–a major shift happening in mobile tech that is disrupting
the way companies interact with consumers. PWAs were first introduced by
Google in 2015 and the technology has been backed by major tech players
such as Apple, Microsoft and Firefox–making it widely available to
consumers regardless of their mobile browser. Through the Lumavate
platform, companies can deliver highly-personalized mobile experiences
faster and at a fraction of the cost compared to native mobile apps.

“We’re serving an unmet need that exists in enterprise organizations–the
ability to quickly create highly-personalized mobile experiences at
scale,” said Mark Hill, Lumavate’s CEO and Chairman. “Today’s enterprise
organizations rely on their own software engineers or external resources
to build and update their native mobile apps. This process is often
extremely costly and time consuming, and results in low adoption and
engagement. Our platform drastically changes this paradigm by enabling
marketers to quickly create mobile experiences using reusable widgets
already available within the Lumavate platform, or utilizing widgets
created within the platform by their own IT team. This allows marketers
to quickly design and deploy highly-personalized mobile experiences that
customers can turn to throughout their entire customer journey. It’s
because of this that Lumavate is truly the next generation mobile
application development platform.”

“Lumavate is on the forefront of what’s happening in mobile tech and is
well positioned to capitalize on the transition from native mobile apps
to PWAs,” said Jupiter Peak Managing Partner Mike Simmons. “Lumavate’s
impressive platform, veteran team and growing roster of enterprise
clients–including a Fortune 100 company–are why I’m excited to
participate in this round of funding.”

In addition to this new round of funding, Lumavate recently launched its
Partner Program to support its growing network of strategic
relationships with:

  • Marketing Agencies
  • Consulting and System Integrators
  • Activation Companies (NFC, packaging, and printers)
  • Technology (Software, IoT platforms, digital ads, and cloud storage)

“We’re really excited about the launch of our partner program and the
success our partners are already seeing,” said Lumavate’s Co-founder and
Vice President of Business Development Bill Godfrey. “We afford our
partners the flexibility to serve their customers as a managed service
provider, reseller, or teaming partner, which really helps them
differentiate and grow their business.” To learn more about Lumavate’s
