apisphere logoApisphere, a company that makes several business applications that use location data, has raised $4.6 million in funding.

As others have noted, the Berkeley, Calif. company’s funding is particularly noteworthy since most of the high-profile location-based startups to-date, such as Loopt and Foursquare, have focused on social capabilities rather than business. Apisphere’s apps, on the other hand, include tools for location-based mobile advertising campaigns and a plugin that delivers alerts to Microsof’s email and calendar program Outlook.

The funding was disclosed in a regulatory filing, which doesn’t mention any investors. I’ve emailed Apisphere for comment and will update if I hear back.
