Strategic investors participating in the round include Eric Schmidt's TomorrowVentures, ZIG Capital, Chris Burch via JCB Investments, Moore Venture Partners, La Jolla Holding Co., and several super angel investors. This current $2.3M round brings the total amount raised to $4.5M.

"This latest round of capital will allow us to significantly ramp up our SAAS product offering. Our software allows any company to connect, communicate and monetize its consumers, manage their data, and provide hundreds of benefits, privileges and discounts through a membership program," says Mitch Thrower, BUMP's Founder and CEO. "With our proprietary software and technology, we are uniquely positioned to build on our continuing success in attracting enterprise customers," he added.

BUMP Network's white label customers include large shopping malls and retailers, conference companies, medical services providers, sports companies, and more.

"We also maintain our own consumer membership product and plan to expand this platform in 2013. BUMP.com will offer all motorists a premium membership program including hotel, car, and air privileges along with a top-notch roadside assistance program for the digital age. BUMP.com members will receive a better, less expensive option to the industry's current offerings," says Thrower, a serial entrepreneur, who was the co-founder and CEO of several successful technology companies, including some of the world's largest sports transaction businesses. He was also Chairman of Triathlete Magazine and is a 22x Ironman Triathlete.
