We've closed our seed fundraising round!

We started this company in 2016 with an idea and a modest innovation grant from the National Science Foundation. And today we are very pleased to announce the closing of our seed fundraising round, during which we raised $950k! The round was led by TiE Boston Angels and included investors from the MIT Alumni Angels and Launchpad Venture Group communities. We’ll use this investment to continue developing our technology platform, bringing ground-breaking media insight to marketers.

We’ll be updating this blog on a regular basis with industry trends and special insights, so bookmark this page and check back often!
