Koozoo Closes on $2.5M Seed Round

Dec 12, 2012

Koozoo Closes on $2.5M Seed Round December 12, 2012 Follow @buyouts Online video platform Koozoo has raised $2.5 million in seed funding led by New Enterprise Associates and Tugboat Ventures. Angel investors participating in this round included Dave Moellenhoff, co-founder and former CTO of Salesforce.com, and Michael Covarrubias, Chairman & CEO of TMG Partners. Koozoo describes itself as a “crowd-sourced network of continuously broadcasting smartphone video cameras.” PRESS RELEASE Koozoo, the first platform dedicated to unlocking the potential of shared live video of the world’s public places, today announced it had closed a $2.5 million seed round of funding led by New Enterprise Associates and Tugboat Ventures. Angel investors participating in this round included Dave Moellenhoff, co-founder and former CTO of Salesforce.com, and Michael Covarrubias, Chairman & CEO of TMG Partners. “Koozoo is the first platform to make live views of the world’s public places easily accessible to one and all,” said Drew Sechrist, CEO and co-founder of Koozoo. “It’s incredible that today we can instantly look up an old friend or nearly any factoid, but we still can’t easily find answers to simple questions about what’s happening right now — like how long the line is at the coffee shop or whether or not it’s foggy at the beach. That’s the basic problem Koozoo aims to solve.” Koozoo is the first crowd-sourced network of continuously broadcasting smartphone video cameras. From any smartphone, computer, or tablet, Koozoo members can instantly see user-generated live views of places they care about, from their favorite neighborhood cafe to iconic destinations around the world. “The world’s static information has already been indexed and made available to us in seconds. The next frontier is understanding what’s happening in the real world, right now, and Koozoo is leading the way,” said Jon Sakoda, of NEA. Koozoo members share their views by downloading the Koozoo App to an old smartphone and point the device out of a home or office window to share a 24/7 live view. Koozoo is free. “Koozoo will usher in a new era that reads like science fiction today,” said Trevor Darrell, professor at UC Berkeley and head of the Computer Vision Group at the International Computer Science Institute. “For example, within a few years I expect Koozoo to let you take a virtual walk down the street in Tokyo or Paris in 3D, live, as you sit comfortably at home in California.” How to Get Involved Koozoo is currently in closed beta-testing in San Francisco, and will launch publicly in early 2013. To participate in the Koozoo Beta Program, San Francisco residents can send a picture of the view from their home or office windows to views(at)koozoo.com. People with interesting views of life in San Francisco may be given early beta access. About Koozoo Koozoo is a new online platform that allows people to see and share live views of places they care about.
