Conference calling startup Speek, which offers online and mobile tools that make it easier to jump on calls regardless of which device you have on hand, and then do more on calls once connected, is today announcing $5.1 million in Series A funding. The round includes $2.7 million in previously raised convertible notes, plus new investment from 500 Startups, Edward Norton (yes, the actor), CNF Investments, Middleland Capital, and others.
A few notable angels in the round are Michael Chasen (Blackboard); Timothy Chi and Sonny Ganguly (WeddingWire); Jeffrey Wolfe and Robert Wolfe (CrowdRise); and Haroon Mokhtarzada and Zeki Mokhtarzada (Webs).
Also as a part of the round, Alexander Pessala from Middleland Capital is joining Speek’s board.
D.C.-based Speek was founded in 2012 by CEO John Bracken, co-founder of Evite, and CTO Danny Boice. Both had worked in corporate environments in the past, and knew the pain points of dealing with conference calling solutions first-hand.
