About the Company

Pointy gives local retailers a way not only to tell customers about their business, but also to tell them the products they will find when they visit. 

Pointy is the brainchild of Mark Cummins and Charles Bibby who know what local retailers need and how to work with Google to deliver it.

Cummins first company was acquired by Google in 2012 and the new Pointy venture just secured $12 million in Series B capital from Vulcan Capital, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s investment firm and Polaris Partners. This round added to the company’s previous funding which included backers Matt Mullenweg (founder of WordPress) and Lars Rasmussen (co-founder of Google Maps).
