Cloud Elements logoDENVER - Cloud Elements, a leading cloud API integration and aggregation service, today announced it has raised $3.1 million in Series A funding led by Grotech Ventures and Icon Venture Partners with participation from Galvanize Ventures.

The investment will allow the company to expand the development of its growing catalog of SaaS API connectors and innovative API management platform, invest in developer outreach and accelerate sales and marketing, Cloud Elements said.

Could Elements said it has the first comprehensive integration platform designed specifically for SaaS application providers of all sizes, not just the large enterprises targeted by other vendors.

The company said it differs from other integration platform services through its innovative approach to connecting entire categories of cloud services through a single aggregated API.

"The first generation of integration platforms rely on complex, legacy enterprise services buses that are out of step with the RESTful API approach dominating the cloud today," said Marke Geene, Cloud Elements CEO.

"Cloud Elements is the only integration platform that is 100 percent consumable through easy-to-use RESTful APIs."
