Urban Airship is on fire!

The news is all over the wires today (e.g., Mashable, TechCrunch, PEHub, Xconomy, etc) so I don’t have much to add other than a big congrats to the Urban Airship team. Not for the raise (raising capital is always a bittersweet event) but for rocking the world of smartphone messaging infrastructure so hard. The Urban Airship team delivers that rare combination of relentless innovation with insane customer focus and rock-solid execution at crazy scale (over 1 billion messages served to date). Adding Foundry to the investor team is a huge win for the company (and just plain fun for Andy and I here at Founders Co-op – between TechStars, BigDoor and Urban Airship we now have three good reasons to hang out in Boulder). Nice!
