Cuseum, formerly Spotzer, was recently featured by BostInno for the announcement of its seed funding. The story looks at how this funding will allow the company to build on its successful record and continue to expand. This seed funding will allow Cuseum to continue to leverage technology in the cultural sector and assist museums and cultural institutions in bringing an engaging mobile experience to their visitors!
“Back in December, we put a spotlight on [Cuseum], a Boston startup powering interactive, socially engaging apps that personalize museum visitors’ experiences. Since then, the company has taken on a new name—Cuseum—and now, raised $1.2 million in seed financing. Investors in this round included Foundry Group’s FG Angels, Atlas Venture’s Boston Syndicates, Seavest Capital Partners, Drummond Road Capital and New Gen Partners. Angel investors Paul English, Joshua Schachter, Deborah Ellinger, Wayne Chang, Colin Angle, Nicole Stata, David Chang, Jit Saxena and others also participated.
