(PRWEB) June 21, 2010 -- Apptera (www.apptera.com), the leading voice and visual mobile advertising network, today announced that it closed a $10 million Series B financing. The investment was led by New World Ventures. Also participating in the round were existing investors Lightspeed Venture Partners, Alloy Ventures, and Walden International. Matt McCall, Partner at New World, will join Apptera’s Board of Directors.

“Apptera’s team and innovative approach to mobile advertising clearly stood out,” said Matt McCall. “Apptera has created a highly effective and innovative mobile advertising solution for a large, untapped market. New World invests in companies with strong management, differentiated technology and the ability to capitalize on large, fast growing markets. Apptera fits the bill in every respect.” Apptera joins other New World investments which include Playdom, Zinch, TopSchool, TicketsNow and LeftHand Networks.

Apptera’s proprietary ad-serving technology enables marketers to effectively reach and engage a large and valuable mobile audience while enabling publishers to monetize their phone channel and enhance their customer’s experience with relevant messages. Apptera’s voice and visual mobile advertising technology dynamically inserts relevant and interactive audio messages into calls and allows advertisers to target their messages based on a variety of targeting parameters such as a caller’s location, mobile carrier, interests and behavior. Apptera’s audio ads are also the starting point for a wide range of visual engagements and mobile interactions. Consumers who opt-in to Apptera voice and visual ads can receive instantaneous or scheduled SMS text messages; mobile coupons or links to mobile web sites and smart phone application downloads; MMS messages with embedded videos formatted for their devices; enhanced call services such as immediate transfers to, or callbacks from, sales agents; or offers to various products or services billed directly by their mobile carriers.

According to Henry Vogel, Apptera’s CEO, “this latest financing and our new partners will help fuel our continued expansion. We chose New World Ventures because of Matt’s deep domain expertise and collaborative approach. Moreover, leveraging New World’s broad network will help us achieve our long-term vision of re-inventing mobile advertising. I’m excited to work with New World and our existing partners at Lightspeed, Alloy and Walden on our next phase of growth.”
