Toronto’s CrowdRiff, a visual and social marketing solution for destination and travel brands, today announced $2 million (USD) in seed funding.
The Canadian company also revealed a 400% growth in customers in 2015.
The seed round hails from BDC Venture Capital, Gibraltar Ventures, High Alpha Capital and Foundation Capital.
The capital will be used to drive product innovation, accelerate hiring in sales and marketing and build out their visual influence platform, CrowdRiff says.
“Using photos and videos to promote your brand has completely changed in the last few years with customers demanding authenticity, variety and immediacy—and that’s what CrowdRiff delivers,” says CrowdRiff CEO Dan Holowack.
