PHONE.COM SELECTS NEWARK AS ITS NEW HEADQUARTERS
March 28, 2013
Phone.com will now be located in the Enterprise Development Center at the New Jersey institute of Technology (NJIT). With ties to NJIT, Phone.com strengthens its presence in Newark – New Jersey’s largest city – and contributes to the growing technology sector here.
The Enterprise Development Center is an incubator of many New Jersey startups. As a company working for the underserved startup market, Phone.com hopes to build relationships with existing and fledgling startups as a result of the move.
“We have been looking forward to this move for a long time,” said Phone.com CEO Ari Rabban . “With our offices in Newark, we will be able to build stronger ties with the technology community and will also have closer contact with the students and graduates of NJIT, who have an illustrious history of technology innovation. “
The move from Livingston to Newark comes as a result of recent funding that Phone.com received. The company recently closed on an investment from ff Venture Capital and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority’s Edison Innovation Venture Capital Growth Fund to propel the company’s goal of increased growth.
