1World Online, a consumer intelligence company, announced that it achieved its goals for 2013 in closing $1.5 million in Series A financing in December, extending its platform with new features and operating system support over the last few weeks and launching new partners throughout the second half of 2013. According to a release, 1World closed an over-subscribed $1.5M Series A round, which included both noted angel and institutional investors in early December 2013 . The funding will accelerate the company's maturation, as well as to solidify its role as a consumer intelligence source. "Building on our momentum, we will use this new financing to put more resources into our products and services, support our new customer wins and begin the expansion into new markets, " said Alex Fedosseev, CEO and co-founder of 1World Online. 1World provides the answers to what people really think about the key issues of the day in a cross-platform application; allowing consumers to engage with a multitude of topical subjects on their computer, tablet or smartphone. Previously available for iOS in the App Store and for Android devices through Google Play; 1World recently released an app for Windows 8/8.1 devices which is currently featured in the Windows Store . Within its sector, only 1World has such broad platform support. The app provides hundreds of active polls, poll results, opinions, and data points on a variety of topics such as education, politics, sports, technology and world news. The app is available in English, Russian, Spanish and French; with more languages on the way. According to the company, 1World has had a successful 2013 in terms of bringing on new customers and partners.
