We’re delighted to announce our $1.7M seed financing with investors from Boston, New York and San Francisco. We’re excited to bring together key expertise in mobile, consumer health, and big data.
The round was led by our friends at True Ventures, a seed fund with an inspiring perspective on early stage growth. Participation also included west coast investors Mitch Kapor at Kapor Capital (Lotus 1-2-3), James Joaquin (XMarks, Pixable), and Ty Curry (Managing Partner at ZS Associates). Notable East coast investors include Romulus Capital (seed investor in MIT/Harvard startups), Walt Winshall (PatientsLikeMe, AgaMatrix), Bill Warner (Avid, Wildfire), Ari Buchler (General Counsel for Phase Forward), ENIAC Ventures (mobile seed fund in NY), Launch Capital (seed stage mobile and health startups), and of course,Techstars (startup accelerator program).
We plan to use this round of financing to grow our technology platform, and ramp up our engineering and product development to support our early partners. If you’re interested in joining the team, get in touch. It’s been an exciting journey so far, and we’re just getting started. A big thank you to the Ginger.io extended family for your support. We couldn’t have gotten here without you. Alright, now it’s back to work!
