Growing a business at a rate of 400% during recession is no mean feat, but Josh March is managing it in style, and confident he can maintain this astonishing upward curve – buoyed by a recent VC investment of £1.5m. A string of blue-chip multi-nationals, such as Groupon, ITV, Johnson and Johnson and the London 2012 Olympic organisers, have already signed up for Conversocial’s groundbreaking service, which equips users with the tools to manage conversations on social media fan pages.

Josh anticipates further big names joining the Conversocial family in the months ahead, and is currently gearing up for an aggressive expansion programme in America over the next couple of years.

2012 update

In September, March sold Conversocial’s sister company, iPlatform, to Betapond in a combined cash and stock deal.

March and partner Dan Lester decided to separate iPlatform and Conversocial in 2010 to focus on securing VC to realise Conversocial’s grand ambitions. Conversocial was named number 15 in the Startups 100 and is steadily building its presence in the US.
