Startup Florida, an early stage investment fund for hi-tech companies, today announced the closing of a new investment in MOVO Mobile, a software company providing a single, integrated framework for delivering on-demand mobile marketing solutions to businesses seeking to extend their advertising and marketing messages to consumer's mobile devices. Dan Miller, Managing Partner of Startup Florida, is assuming CEO responsibilities for the company. Terms of the financing were not disclosed. The company’s headquarters are located in the Startup Florida Incubator in Sarasota, Florida.

No prohibitive costs or lengthy implementation, just a quick sign-up process that allows advertisers to start measuring campaign effectiveness and capturing qualified leads like never before possible.”
