FI Grad ReadyPulse raises $2 million, featured on Digital Journal

Posted by Joe Garza on 2014-04-16

ReadyPulse recently announced the close of their Series A investment round, totaling $2 million in funding. The press release detailing their success was featured on Digital Journal.

Co-Founders Srinivas Penumaka and T. Vinod Gupta, the President and CTO of ReadyPulse, respectively, are Graduates of the Seattle Founder Institute.

An enterprise content commerce company, ReadyPulse has made a name for itself in the sports, fashion, media, entertainment, and subscription industries by displaying a brand’s best and most relevant social content, such as photos and videos. What sets ReadyPulse apart, if not above, their contemporaries is that they add filters of permission and compliance, changing the face of digital marketing in the process.

Brands have been relying on organic content without explicit user permissions or contest disclosures, which leaves them vulnerable to compliance issues.

What we do differently is we put the permissions in the hands of the actual brand ambassador, and allow our brands to find the highest quality, product relevant, authorized social content from those opt-in ambassadors.” - Dennis O'Malley, CEO of ReadyPulse

Among the lead investors in the series A round were Divergent Ventures, Harmony Capital, and Moxie Software, as well as Angel Investors from Seattle and Silicon Valley. ReadyPulse's Board of Directors was also joined by Todd Warren from Divergent Ventures, and Tom Kelly, Former Moxie Software CEO.
