DEAL - Expansion

VALUE - $700,000


SECTOR - Software

FOUNDED - 2011


The young company will use the fresh capital to expand its product base and start developing a platform for professionals who design mobile and internet apps.

The angel investors who took part in the round are Andreessen Horowitz, an investor in Facebook and Instragram; Gil Penchina, an investor in PayPal and Linkedin; and Mansour Salame.

IDG is the venture capital arm of IT media company International Data Group.

Founded in 2011, Uxpin is headquartered in Gdynia and currently employs eight staff. The company provides user experience (UX) design tools to UX design professionals, namely a prototyping notepad that can then be uploaded to Uxpin's prototyping app. The notepad is used in a "traditional" sense and can then be photographed, uploaded and edited online.

Uxpin's tools are used for the UX design of mobile and web apps. Its products are used by design professionals at Apple, Google, Yahoo, Sony and IBM.

Marcin Treder is the CEO of Uxpin, as well as co-founder alongside CPO Kamil Zięba, COO Marcin Kowalski, Piotr Duszyński and Wiktor Mazur. Piotr Wilam is a managing partner at Innovation Nest and an adviser to Uxpin.
