Oklahoma City-based Whiteboard Technologies has raised $2.5 million through a Series A investment round led by Oklahoma City-based i2E Inc., the companies said Tuesday.
Whiteboard Technologies is the creator of Whiteboard Mortgage CRM, a web-based customer relations management tool for the mortgage loan industry that allows mortgage loan officers to follow up on new leads and keep borrowers and partners updated throughout the loan process.
i2E invested $1.25 million in Whiteboard Technologies through the i2E-managed Oklahoma Seed Capital Fund and another $250,000 through the Oklahoma Angel Fund, also managed by i2E. Co-investors included members of the SeedStep Angels, founded and managed by i2E, other angel investors and the founder.
“With the investment from i2E, Whiteboard can now start growing much more aggressively, both inside the mortgage industry while identifying some additional key vertical markets to focus on,” said Brian Bomar, founder and CEO of Whiteboard Technologies.
