Netpulse Nets Major Funding

Netpulse, based in San Francisco, a leading digital platform for the fitness industry, has secured $18.6 million in new funding from a round led by Nokia Growth Partners (NGP), with participation from August Capital, Javelin Venture Partners, DFJ Frontier, and Docomo Capital.

John Gardner, of NGP, will join the Netpulse board.

The company plans to use the funds to further accelerate its rapid growth, advance the development of its product platform, and introduce new integrations and services both for club operators and members.
