Omnichannel personalization platform RichRelevance announced in early June 2014 that it has secured $20 million in growth capital funding - led by Centerview Capital Technology with participation from existing investors Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ), Greylock Partners, Crosslink Capital and Shea Ventures.
RichRelevance will use the investment to accelerate growth internationally and roll out its recently unveiled Relevance in Store, a strategic initiative that optimizes the in-store experience to drive product discovery, consideration and sales.
