Last year, Booker—a Web-based platform that helps service companies run their businesses—handled $2 billion in transactions and booked 3 million appointments.
The financial district-based company still wants to grow. On Tuesday, Booker announced it had raised $35 million in a Series C round led by Medina Capital—an investment firm whose leader, Manuel Medina, built the IT giant Terremark, which is now owned by Verizon. Another backer is First Data, a payments-processing giant that is expanding into small-business services, which is expected to help Booker gain more customers.
