Filld Raises $9.7 Million
Mobile startup Filld completed $9.7 million in Series A financing. Six investors contributed to the round: Shea Ventures, PivotNorth Capital, Javelin Venture Partners, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Lucas Venture Group, and Cendana Capital.
Filld is a mobile fueling service that delivers gas directly to individual, commercial, and enterprise customers, eliminating the need to stop for gas. Customers simply request gas delivery via Filld’s mobile app, share a vehicle’s location, and schedule a convenient time to have the tank filled. One of the company’s professionally-trained and licensed drivers arrives in a certified, specially-modified small truck to fill up each car; the car’s owner does not need to be present. To keep costs low, Filld offers competitive pricing that is based on the gas stations closest to the delivery location.
In its announcement, the company said that Filld, which has raised more than $16 million in funding to date, intends to use the funds to invest in scaling its current operations for expansion, and to continue working on strategic partnerships.
