Over the last couple of months, Fixt added more money to its funding round.
The Fells Point-based startup, which makes an app that can detect when a mobile device is damaged, closed its seed round at $1.4 million, according to a statement issued last week. The round was initially expected to close at around $1 million.
Paul Silber of Blu Venture Investors also signed on as an investor in the round, joining Google Wallet founder Jonathan Weiner and Walmart board member Jim Cash.
With its app that begins the device-repair process, the company is targeting bigger firms. Along with the investment, a new round of announced clients includes UMBC, Kaiser Permanente, Johns Hopkins University and Promontory Financial Group.
