Intel Capital Leads $9 Million Round in Mobile App Firm FeedHenry

moneybagsIntel Capital has led a $9 million investment round in FeedHenry, a provider of cloud-based mobile applications aimed at the enterprise, with offices in Carriganore, Ireland, and Burlington, Mass.

Other investors in the round include Kernel Capital and ACT Venture Capital (two Irish VC firms) and Enterprise Ireland, a government-backed development outfit. Cloud software company VMware is also an investor.

FeedHenry specializes in providing a cloud-based platform-as-a-service for developing and deploying mobile applications aimed at large organizations. It also runs what it describes as a “backend as a service” that helps get mobile apps working with existing enterprise applications. Its partners include Rackspace, Telefonica, Hewlett-Packard and VMware’s open source platform service, Cloud Foundry.

It’s also a would-be rival to Parse, the mobile development firm that was acquired by Facebook last month.
