OVIA nets $2.5m funding round

OVIA, the Online Video Interviewing Application software, and friend & Alumni of TWiSTldn following their early stage pitch at our very first meetup, announced their latest round of funding from DCM.

For insights into the deal, check out this article on VentureBeat, with David Chao, co-founder and general partner of DCM.

It comes not long after a deal which saw the company move entirely to the US and a round of funding through Dave Mclure’s 500 Startups.

TWiSTldn companies will be familiar with OVIA, since we’ve been using the application to take preliminary applications to pitch at our meetups and the team will agree, it’s been a fantastic tool to cut through the nonsense of sifting through decks, emails, phone calls, coffee meetings and get some short straight answers to our questions about the companies and to get a real feel for who the entrepreneur behind the idea is.

I’m sure there’s much more to come from OVIA, and as a member of the TWiSTldn community, we’re rooting for them to kick ass.
