Dulles, Va. – Speek.com, the Dulles-based developer of a visual conference calling service, said on Tuesday it has raised $1.2 million in seed-stage funding, co-led by several early-stage venture funds.
The news comes on the heels of the startup’s October win at the Distilled Intelligence 2.0 pitch competition in DC, as well as acceptance into startup accelerators 500 Startups and AOL’s Fishbowl Labs.
Speek was founded by CEO John Bracken, a co-founder of Evite.com and former business development executive at AOL, and chief technology officer Danny Boice, the founder of Jaxara and a former executive at The College Board.
The company in June launched its beta platform, which uses a personal link instead of a phone number and PIN to let participants use conference calls. Once on the call, users can see who’s joined, who’s talking, share files and use call controls.
The company in September landed a $100,000 investment from the Center for Innovative Technology (CIT).
