Mobile software provider, Artisan, was just slipped a few bills from 5-year-old VC firm FirstMark Capital. The $5.5 million investment is a reaffirmation of FirstMark’s confidence in the Philadelphia-based firm, which it funded to the tune of $1.5 million last year.
FirstMark’s previous investments include Pinterest, SecondMarket, NewsCred and TapAd. The VC had also led a $4 million funding round in 2008 for Boomi, the platform-as-a-service company headed by current Artisan CEO Bob Moul. Boomi went on to be acquired by Dell in 2010.
