FunnelAI announced March 27th, 2019 that it received a $1.5 million seed round led by San Antonio based venture capital firm, Active Capital. The investment included funding from the Geekdom Fund, Europe-based retail and consumer investor True, and angel investors from San Antonio and Houston.
Founded in 2017, the marketing and sales startup created a software platform that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to find online indications of intent for businesses looking for customer prospects. RealCo accelerator and micro venture capital fund co-founder Michael Girdley helped bring the company from Austin to San Antonio, where it continues its participation in the accelerator program. The company has been able to generate $1 million in annual recurring revenue through subscriptions for its flagship software tool since November 2018, or 15 months after its launch.
Join us in an electrifying panel discussion that will cover startups, funding, challenges & ideas for growth, and debunk the misconception that San Antonio is not a place for advance technology to scale.
