More on Embrace:

  • Embrace provides a comprehensive unified health and optimization platform for mobile applications, which enables businesses to make their iOS/Android apps stable and faster.
  • Its platform supports a wide array of companies (OKCupid, Boxed, Headspace); Mobile Commerce is a key category supported (Wish, Goat, Thrive, Home Depot) because Embrace solves shopping cart issues, increasing revenues and reducing cart abandonment.
  • Since launching in 2016, Embrace has already grown to support trillions of mobile app events, and analyzes every user session to diagnose 5X more in-app issues than any other mobile toolset and fix mobile experiences.
  • Earlier this year, Embrace raised $4.5 million from investors including Pritzker Group Venture Capital, Greycroft, Vy Capital, and Miramar Ventures.
Previously, Embrace CEO Eric Futoran co-founded Scopely, a mobile gaming company with a +$400 million run rate. He was instrumental in the growth of Scopely as an initial owner of the Dice With Buddies / Yahtzee franchise, which was the driver of each of Scopely’s key financing, totaling over $60 million. Embrace technology spun out of a need that Eric found while at Scopely for better insights on the performance of their mobile gaming portfolio.
