12th #FounderShowcase Winner, Spikes, Secures $1M Seed Round From Javelin Venture Partners

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-01-24

Today we are excited to announce that Spikes, the winner of the 12th Founder Showcase Pitch Competition and Silicon Valley Founder Institute graduate, has secured $1 million in Seed Funding! Leading the round is Jed Katz of Javelin Venture Partners, a San Francisco based VC firm and regular attendee of the Founder Showcase.

In response to the round, the Spikes team posted this on the company blog: “[We] would like to thank our new friends at Javelin and the other angel investors for believing in us and our mission to secure the web. ‘It has been a lot of work to prove our technology and prowess, and get to work securing the web’ said Spikes CEO/CTO Branden Spikes upon receiving news that funding had been completed.”

At the 12th Founder Showcase, Branden Spikes wowed judges and won the competition with a near perfect score. With such an overwhelmingly positive response to Spikes at the Showcase, it’s no wonder Javelin backed the project. Click here to watch Spike’s winning pitch.
