Digital gets more millions (round 1)

Insurance consultancy startup, FinanceFox, which allows customers to manage their insurance policies via a mobile app, raised $5.5 million to expand its marketing and sales activities in Switzerland and Germany as well as enter new markets. Salesforce Ventures is a backer and the FinanceFox app is built entirely on the Salesforce platform. Bottom Line: sounds a lot like Swiss insurance broker Knip.

FinanceFox isn’t the only startup to make headlines due to its mobile-first strategy. See below.
