Everything.me Announces a $25 Million Strategic Investment From Telefónica, SingTel Innov8, Mozilla and Existing Investors

Everything.me (formerly DoAT), developer of an innovative HTML5-based dynamic mobile app platform, today announced it has secured $25 million in series C funding in a round led by the Silicon Valley-based venture team of Telefónica Digital. The latest round also includes investments from SingTel Innov8, Mozilla and previous investors including Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ), DFJTF, BRM Group and Horizons Ventures. The Israeli-based company will use the funding to expand its team and drive Everything.me’s ongoing development.

Everything.me is powering a new paradigm for smartphones – changing them from “smart” to “dynamic.” Rather than the static experience of today’s smartphone, a dynamic phone adapts its offering of apps on the fly, matching the content and services a user needs with the most relevant apps available – whether locally or from the cloud. This shift bridges the gap between the web and applications on mobile. Apps appear on the screen according to user intent and are all instantly available and ready to use whether the user downloaded them or not. This dynamic platform enhances mobile OS and app store experiences by providing easy access to thousands of apps, games and services available on HTML5.

“Everything.me was started to harness the power of HTML5 and the openness of the web to disrupt the mobile industry,” said Rami Kasterstein, CEO and Co-Founder, Everything.me. “We see this investment as evidence of the capabilities of fully-mobile web apps, which Everything.me provides to users at their fingertips, on demand. We are excited to be working with our new partners Telefónica, SingTel and Mozilla, who are driving innovation for consumers.”

“Everything.me represents a significant breakthrough in bringing the power of the web to mobile,” said Carlos Domingo, Director of Product Development & Innovation, Telefónica Digital. “We are committed to driving greater openness in mobile ecosystems which will in turn spur innovation. This is why we are such strong supporters of Firefox OS. The integration of Everything.me into Firefox OS will add a rich and compelling content experience for customers.”

“Everything.me is aligned closely with Mozilla’s mission and goals,” said Jay Sullivan, VP, Products, Mozilla. “Like us, they are committed to using the power of the web to bring the mobile app experience to consumers, regardless of the platform, OS or browser used. We are excited to be working closely together to further the abilities of the HTML5, and to create an outstanding content experience on the Firefox OS.”

“We are excited to be a part of the team at Everything.me,” said Jeff Karras, Managing Director, SingTel Innov8. “Everything.me offers a fundamental change to the mobile experience providing access to a broad universe of mobile applications and unlocking the power of HTML5.”

“Everything.me will change the way mobile users access and interact with mobile apps,” said Tim Draper, Founder and Managing Director, Draper Fisher Jurvetson and Board Member, Everything.me. “Everything.me emerges in the intersection of apps, HTML5 and cloud, to connect people with the information and the functionality they want in a more agile manner. For developers, it provides an open web and multiplatform (HTML5) playground to innovate beyond the limitations of the existing app stores. For users, it brings the right services to them at the right place at the right time. We look forward to the opportunity this latest round of funding provides Everything.me in the future.”

About Everything.me

Everything.me is disrupting the mobile industry with its dynamic phone platform. Enabled by Everything.me, a dynamic phone adapts to users’ needs by changing the apps on screen to match the content and services the user needs at any point in time. Any app offered by Everything.me can then be used directly from the cloud (using HTML5) without download and installation. Everything.me is available on HTML5, as an iPhone app and will be launched on Android. Founded in 2010 (as DoAT) and based in Israel, the company is backed by world-leading strategic and financial investors including Telefónica Digital, SingTel Innov8, Mozilla, Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ), BRM Group, Horizon Ventures and DFJTF.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
