Goby Turns Profitable After Receiving Series A Funding

Today, Goby, a data and analytics platform for real estate portfolio optimization, announces its first profitable month. Goby has become profitable on an operational basis less than 18 months after receiving its series A funding from GreenSoil Building Innovation Fund.

In the first quarter of 2017, Goby increased its entire customer base by 10%, expanding to nearly 1 billion square feet in paid subscribers. Through this growth, Goby has maintained 99% revenue retention. Goby’s SaaS revenue alone grew 120% last year, surpassing the budgeted projections by 17%.

“The Series A investment has created an opportunity for growth, powering accelerated product innovation, enhancement of team capabilities, and expansion of our global outreach,” says Ryan Nelson, COO.

“Goby’s consistent progress towards profitability was achieved by following a diligent, methodical approach to value creation and responsible business practices. Our adherence to this mission has fueled laser sharp focus on our SaaS roadmap and core solutions. We have reached this important milestone as a direct result of this focus, and expect our profitability and cash flow generation to continually increase as our thriving customer base and international footprint expands.”
