Verizon Messages Partner Glympse Joins our Portfolio

A provider of in person-to-person time-based location sharing technology, Glympse is an easily integrated solution for sharing everyday activities, meetings and events. The technology changes text messaging from a static text communication to a dynamic tool that allows for real-time sharing on a map.

Verizon was one of the first to integrate Glympse's location sharing tools into our Messages app and we quickly saw the technology solving a very real problem for our customers.

We are pleased to join Glympse's Series C round of financing and we invested at this time believing there is enormous opportunity for Verizon and for Glympse to further its position. According to Forbes, the real-time sharing trend is continuing and we look forward to helping people see texting in a new way.
