Boulder-based Cloud Campaign closes a $5M Series A funding to help marketing agencies manage multiple brands on social media at scale
Cloud Campaign, a Boulder, Colorado-based tech startup that helps marketing agencies and freelancers to manage multiple brands on social media at scale, today announced a new $5 million round in Series A funding.
The round was led by Oregon Venture Fund and Access Venture Partners, distinguished venture firms supporting high-growth startups in Oregon and Colorado respectively. Cloud Campaign will be using the funding to expand its platform into a comprehensive operating system to further support the growth and success of its customer base.
Founded in 2017 by Ryan Born and Ross Gray, Cloud Campaign’s SaaS platform allows teams to manage multiple clients, automate content workflows, and charge a higher retainer with a leaner team. The startup currently has 13 full-time employees and will double in the next year by tapping into the ever-growing Portland and Boulder talent pool.
Cloud Campaign offers marketing agencies, as well as freelance marketers, a purpose-built
marketing platform to improve their workflows and scalability. More than 7,600 companies and
9,000 users are actively using Cloud Campaign, including Hilton, BMW, and Ernst & Young.
In 2020, 1 million Americans started freelancing — and Cloud Campaign is the operating
system for this thriving market. Over the past year, Cloud Campaign grew revenue by 200%,
adding 420 agency customers and publishing over 3 million social media posts in the process.
“Marketers are laser-focused on the performance of every single social media post,” said Ryan
Born, Co-founder and CEO of Cloud Campaign. “We give marketers and their clients, no matter
their size, tools so powerful it fuels client acquisition and significantly aids in retention,” Born
continued. “We’ve had enormous success enabling the freelancer and agency market to expand
and grow their businesses.”
Access Venture Partner’s Managing Partner Kirk Holland says, “Existing social marketing tools
are not designed for multi-brand management, causing serious problems for marketing
agencies and freelancer marketers. We’re excited to support Cloud Campaign’s rapid growth
and expansion as it continues to better serve this often underserved market.” Cloud Campaign
fills the void and provides agencies and freelancers with a white-labeled operating system for
managing clients, creating and scheduling content, automating workflows, and monitoring campaign analytics.
“Boulder and Portland have well-established startup environments and tight-knit communities that will help us achieve the next stage of growth without the high costs of bigger tech cities,” says Born.
“Agencies are looking for a comprehensive solution to help them manage campaigns for
multiple clients and acquire and retain new clients, all while collaborating with key stakeholders
at every stage of the agency-client relationship,” says Jason Burby, Chief Client Officer at
