Boulder County-based VictorOps launches, raises nearly $1.6M

A trio of Raindance Communications Inc. veterans are behind a stealth-mode Boulder County startup.

Todd Vernon, a Boulder entrepreneur behind companies such as Raindance Communications and Lijit Inc., today announced the launch of his latest venture: VictorOps.

Vernon paired with Raindance veterans Bryce Ambraziunas and Dan Jones to build VictorOps, a stealth-mode startup aimed at assisting operations teams manage system outages and other problems.

Vernon provided some context in a blog post published Thursday morning:

With over 60 years of combined experience in the VictorOps founding team alone, we have built and rebuilt systems to help our teams succeed.  We can’t help asking ourselves, “Why? Why in a world with Salesforce.com to help sales teams, and Rally Software to revolutionize the way development teams interact, why has Operations been left out of the party?”

VictorOps’ initial fuel consists of a $1.585 million seed funding investment from Boulder’s Foundry Group, Tango, Vernon, Ambraziunas and Jones, Vernon said.

VictorOps’ launch comes just over a year after Lijit Inc. was acquired by Federated Media.
