The company has increased its headcount over the last year from 18 to now 42 employees between offices in Boston and Kiev, Ukraine. Sapir says the funds will be invested into making better products with more intelligence to create the next generation platform. "There's so much opportunity in this space still. Our goal is to bring more transparency to the app ecosystem and make it easier for people to both enter and succeed."
"Some things just make sense. In this day in age, companies cannot afford to make decisions without insight and intelligence, especially in ultra-competitive markets like the app economy," said Guy Oseary, Founder of Sound Ventures. "More than the product though, I always say I like to invest in relationships and people. It's so important to have the combination of passion and vision that Eliran and Jon possess."
"I believed in Apptopia and its founders when I initially invested in 2014 and my belief has only strengthened as the company has tripled its revenue just this year," said Mark Cuban. "Having experience with my own app, Dust, I know how important app marketplace intelligence is to big and small developers alike and what that insight can translate into."
Apptopia now has a multi-million dollar annual recurring revenue and recently struck a partnership with CrunchBase.
Apptopia provides the most accurate app store downloads, revenue, and SDK data for every mobile app and every publisher in the world through intuitive tools. Apptopia was founded by CEO Eliran Sapir and COO Jonathan Kay on the belief that the mobile app community requires transparency to level the playing field and make way for innovation and industry advancements. Mobile publishers and developers, service providers, and investors use Apptopia on a daily basis to understand and monitor competitors, inform business strategies, and identify emerging consumer interests and trends.
