May 15, 2015

Raptor Ventures Invests in Signal360 5/14/15 Signal360, the leader in Proximity Marketing, is pleased to announce that it has secured an additional round of funding enabling the company to expand operations to support rapid growth.

This round of funding supports acceleration across multiple verticals. John Cullen, a Partner in Capstar, is “delighted to invest in this quickly emerging space. Signal360 is a clear market leader and we were attracted to the unique technology, specifically the patented audio feature allowing brands to interact with customers who have Bluetooth disabled on their phones and the complete CRM connection and business analytics.” This type of investment is not new to Capstar. “We have a solid history in media and technology and decided to make this strategic investment in what is bound to be a billion dollar industry.” Cullen will serve as Executive Chairman of the Signal360 board of directors.

The injection of capital from new investors allows us to expedite growth and maintain our position with the best-in-class offering for our customers as well as benefit from new thought leadership in the retail technology space.
