Voices.com has raised $2 million from BDC Capital.
The Ontario company says it will use this capital to acquire additional space, tools, and hire more people “to maintain momentum as it is working to solidify its leading market position.”
“As we continue to expand our team and processes for large-scale growth, investment of this kind is necessary to meet our goals,” says David Ciccarelli, CEO of Voices.com. “This $2 million investment is capital for growth initiatives, without diluting our ownership.”
“BDC Capital is proud to support Voices.com’s plans to accelerate growth,” said Mark Lunick, Director, Growth and Transition at BDC Capital. “We look forward to continuing to work with the company and are impressed with their vision for future growth.”
Founded by David and Stephanie Ciccarelli in 2004, the Canadian company now serves 125,000 voice professionals and the 125,000 companies that hire them. The company is experiencing 400% year-over-year growth. Voices.com expects its workforce to reach up to 200 employees by the end of 2016.
The company recently launched an Apple Watch app.
