It’s hard to believe that it’s been two-and-a-half years since Dale and I set up our first customer on Curate. Since then, we’ve continuously improved our software making sense of the tangled web of municipality meeting data, assembled an incredible team (we’re hiring!), and grown our database of documents to 21 states and 220,000 documents a week. But we’re just getting started.
Today, I’m excited to announce that Curate has raised $1.6M from a great group of investors. The funding round was led by Idea Fund of La Crosse with participation from Allos Ventures, Wisconsin Investment Partners, Golden Angels, and other key strategic partners. I don’t think we could have found investors more aligned with our goals and mission — we’ve surrounded ourselves with an incredibly talented group of people committed to our success.
We’re also excited to use this funding to move faster. We see an opportunity to accelerate efforts in line with our mission: To make municipality meeting documentation available and easy to utilize. This funding will allow us to expand into all fifty states, release product updates and improvements at a faster rate, continue building the best-in-class machine-learning capabilities, and will allow us the opportunity to work on some new top-secret projects that we think our customers will love.
On behalf of the team, we are humbled and excited to start the next chapter of our business. There is plenty more to come from Curate, as we’re just at the beginning of our journey. Stay tuned!
