AdStage, a Facebook ads API partner, announced Monday that the company has raised a $1 million round of funding. The company is also launching a new app partnership program and platform API to allow developers to integrate additional apps into the platform.
The $1 million in funding game from Digital Garage, one of AdStage’s existing investors, bringing the total to more than $2.5 million since AdStage’s launch last year. This new round of funding will allow AdStage to grow from 11 employees to more than 20.
Sahil Jain, the company’s CEO and Co-Founder, announced this news in a press release:
We’ve come a long way since we launched our first product, AdStage Express, on this stage last year. The LAUNCH audience was incredibly receptive to our vision so it’s fitting to return and show extraordinary growth. In the time since, we’ve become a complete campaign management and analytics platform for businesses advertising across Google, Bing, Facebook & LinkedIn and we now offer a full suite of complementary apps under one roof which save advertiser’s time and dramatically improve their performance.
AdStage’s new app partnership program allows developers of complementary marketing apps to integrate products directly into AdStage using the New AdStage Platform API. Like Wordtracker, Unbounce and Optimizely, App Partners are able to manage, market and monetize their apps to thousands of advertisers through the app gallery and co-marketing campaigns. Additional App Partners include ReTargeter, Bigstock, Canned Banners, MixRank and Thinkstock by Getty Images. Developers can apply to the program at www.adstage.io/developers.
