Sightly Raises $5.6 Million
Sightly is a local video platform that has raised $5.6 million in venture capital. Sightly is known for pioneering a way for consumers and local businesses to connect in engaging ways. Their video platform helps businesses get found and discovered by consumers. Bright Capital Digital led this round of funding. Foresight Ventures participated in this round and so did existing investors Floodgate, Tomorrow Ventures, Bullpen Capital, Mack Capital, and 500 Startups.
“We believe that video – particularly on mobile devices – is going to drive how consumers find and choose local businesses,” stated Sightly founder and CEO John McIntyre. “This funding from both new and current investors not only validates this vision but supports its realization.”
Sightly will use the funding to fuel continued growth and to expand their reach and functionality of their local video platform. Sightly’s customers include local businesses, SMBs, and multi-location brands. Sightly recently sold their corporate video production division and their original name PixelFish.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry.
