Event technology startup Glisser has announced the closure of a $1m Seed funding round to boost its growth and open a US base in New York.

The round drew support from Downing Ventures, the London Co-Investment Fund and angel investors.

Glisser’s CEO, Mike Piddock, commented on the news:  “In the last year we’ve grown our corporate client base and made significant improvements in our technology. This means we’ve got a scalable product that’s meeting the demands of presenters and event planners, with an audience of 1.2 billion potential users.

“This round of funding means we are well positioned to build an exciting company over the next 12 to 18 months and establish our New York base to meet an increasingly global portfolio of clients,” he added.

Founded in London in 2014 and launched in beta later that year, Glisser was created in order to allow customers to collect more data at business events and meetings.

Glisser claims to have worked with the likes of Amex, Visa and UBS and had previously announced an undisclosed seed round in January last year.
