HiWired raises $9M for technical support

Want to master the CMO role? Join us for GrowthBeat Summit on June 1-2 in Boston, where we'll discuss how to merge creativity with technology to drive growth. Space is limited and we're limiting attendance to CMOs and top marketing execs. Request your personal invitation here!

HiWired is a service company that provides technical support for both businesses and consumers, and has customers including OfficeMax and Cox Communications.

Much like a highly successful public company, LivePerson, HiWired offers outsourced live help and support for everything from gadgets to internet installation. It’s based in Needham, Mass.

The $9 million round was the company’s second, led by North Hill Ventures. The investors from HiWired’s previous $5 million round, Kodiak Venture Partners and Sigma Partners, also participated.
