Cloud Elements is a cloud API integration service company that uses a “one-to-many” approach to connect applications with services, each through a single API. Cloud Elements was founded in October 2012. Its headquarters are in Denver, Colorado.
Cloud Elements has four founders: CEO Mark Geene, CTO Vineet Joshi, VP of Business Gary Gaessler, and VP of Product Development Atul Barve. The four shared a vision to "help developers build cloud applications faster and at a lower cost..."
Cloud Elements was created to offer cloud applications or "Hubs" that provide RESTful APIs with JSON payloads. Cloud Elements "differentiates itself with its one-to-many API which lets developers integrate and maintain several services or "elements" in a category."
On July 18, 2014, the company announced receiving $3.1 million in a Series A funding round. Investors include Virginia-based Grotech Ventures, California-based Icon Venture Partners, along with Galvanize Ventures.
A hub is a category of cloud applications. Cloud Elements currently has five Hubs: Documents, CRM, Marketing, Messaging and Help Desk. Two others are planned: Finance, and Social. Within each Hub individual services support the category. "Customers can integrate to a Cloud Elements “Hub” via a single RESTful API and their app can connect to all the leading application in that category, without doing a custom integration to each service."
