Launched in February 2011, the companyâ€™s platform essentially enables users to manage the sending and tracking of newsletters and transactional emails sent by Web application providers and e-commerce firms.
Notably, Mailjet also takes care of the optimized management of deliverability, trying to ensure that legit emails from their clients donâ€™t wind up in spam folders (the company claims 20% of emails actually do).
Mailjet says 10,000 customers are currently actively using its platform to deliver and track sent emails in real-time. Clients include the MIT, The Fancy, Overblog, TextMaster and Alittlemarket.
The $3.3 million in financing is Mailjetâ€™s first institutional round.
Alven Capital led the round, investing $2.6 million, with participating backers eFounders and Airtek Capital Groupâ€™s Laurent Asscher completing the round. eFounders previously pumped $300,000 into the startup to bankroll initial R&D.
The startup was founded by Thibaud Elziere, who previously started companies like Zilok.com and Fotolia, Julien Tartarin, Quentin Nickmans and Wilfried Durand.
