Co-browsing startup Surfly from Amsterdam got a 1 million euro investment from their American partner ReadyTech. The two companies will cooperate to roll out and further develop Surfly.
Surfly‘s solution lets people surf websites together – no downloads required. This makes remote collaboration or customer service an easier task. Their tech will be used as core to ReadyTech‘s online training software. The money from the investment will be used for marketing and sales.
The startup was founded in 2012 by Nicholas Piël and Denis Bilenko. It got seed funding before from Linden Mobile Ventures in 2013. The company went to market in 2015.
“This cooperation gives us, as a young company, a lot of possibilities in a fast growing market”, Piël said.
Kevin Woodward, CEO ReadyTech: “This investment and relationship allows both companies to focus our efforts on a single co-browsing product and provide better solutions in less time to each of our markets.”
