Danish Facebook partner receives funding for global roll-out


Copenhagen, 27 June 2012

The Danish start-up company Falcon Social, hailed in April by IT giant Facebook, has just secured significant funding for a global roll-out. After just one year in existence, the company has already earned a number of accolades from Facebook for its understanding and knowledge of advanced use and integration with the social media behemoth. Only ten other Facebook partners worldwide have received such honours since the new partner programme was announced at Facebook’s Global Partner Summit in Silicon Valley in April.

Despite its young age, Falcon Social has already attracted global customers such as Pandora, Georg Jensen, IKEA and Colgate. Falcon Social has developed an IT platform that helps customers to manage their presence in social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
In connection with plans to internationalise the company, Falcon Social recently attracted millions in venture capital from the company NorthCap Partners.

“NorthCap Partners has many years of experience in scaling internet-related businesses internationally. We have seen great investor interest but we chose NorthCap Partners due to their operational competencies in building a scalable business system and rapid internationalisation. The fact that we are located just a few minutes away from each other also provides very dynamic interaction in our daily work,” says Ulrik Bo Larsen, CEO of Falcon Social.

“The market for company communication via social media is still in its infancy in Europe. We are certain that we will see the same pattern as in the United States, where the largest companies were the first to take advantage of the opportunities, followed quickly in the past year by medium-sized companies. We expect our platform to reach a market slated to grow dramatically in the coming years, given companies’ increasing use of social media and the increasing number of social media channels,” says Ulrik Bo Larsen, Founder and CEO of Falcon Social.
