FullContact logoDENVER - FullContact announced it closed its latest funding round of $10 million led by Foundry Group and Baird Capital with participation from Blue Note Ventures and 500 Startups.

The round brings total equity investment in the company to $20 million, FullContact said.

As part of the funding round, Baird's Benedict Rocchio will join FullContact's board of directors.

"As a firm, we had identified unified contact management as one of the top pressing challenges for digital consumers, professionals and enterprises," Rocchio said.

"FullContact is on a trajectory to be the leading platform in the space and its innovative culture continues to extend the application of its products to solve more challenges across the digital ecosystem."

"We're very excited to add Benedict and Baird Capital to the FullContact board and receive the long-term support from a great financial institution," said Bart Lorang, FullContact CEO.

The investment comes in the wake of recent major updates to the company's iOS and Gmail-based applications, designed to help FullContact users get more from their address books on mobile, on the Web and inside their existing email accounts.

FullContact said it will continue developing applications for more devices, with upcoming releases for Mac and Android.
