Hopkinton, Mass – Content Raven, the leader in global secure content engagement, announces a 3x increase in revenue year-over-year, from 2014 to 2015. The growth is fueled by a strong increase in new enterprise customers of its secure content engagement solutions for sales, training and media and intellectual property creation. Nauta Capital, MassVentures, and Laconia Capital Group responded to this increased market interest in Content Raven with new investments in the company. Content Raven will use the funding to rapidly scale its sales and marketing efforts.
“Every enterprise struggles to securely deliver up-to-date content and video around the globe, to any device. Content Raven’s Cloud-based solution solves that challenge universally,” said Joe Moriarty, CEO of Content Raven. “Sales, training and entertainment & media departments in particular create large amounts of high-value content and have a specific need to share it easily and securely. More than 75% of our customer growth has come from these targeted solutions, and we have just skimmed the market opportunity there. We are excited that Nauta Capital, MassVentures, and Laconia Capital Group recognized our successes and provided us with capital to more aggressively target these markets.”
Content Raven offers their secure content engagement platform to solve the challenges of three distinct audiences: sales professionals, corporate training departments, and creators of proprietary media and entertainment content. With Content Raven:
Sales executives better manage their pipeline because they know who opens and views which content; securely share proposals to keep them out of competitors’ hands; and track contracts as they await signatures.
Corporate trainers can measure engagement, manage access and eliminate print costs by efficiently disseminating information globally to any device, with tight integration to existing LMS solutions.
Creatives and producers at entertainment and media companies can effectively collaborate on securely protected and watermarked scripts, contracts and raw footage, reducing risk of leaks and piracy.
“Content Raven is a key player in the emerging secure content engagement market and we are excited to add them to our portfolio,” said Dominic Endicott, General Partner at Nauta Capital. “Their tremendous customer list includes many global and Fortune 500 brands in high tech, CPG, financial services and pharmaceuticals. Content Raven has an immediate opportunity to break open this space and we are excited to work with them to do it.”
“Our new investment in Content Raven is a result of the confidence we have in the leadership team and the company’s content engagement platform,” said Nick Pappas, vice president at MassVentures. “No other company has a solution this well-equipped to meet enterprise needs for secure, simple and effective sharing of content and video across multiple devices. We believe the company is well-positioned with its solution-focused strategy to continue its aggressive growth rates in the coming year.”
