Splice Raises $2.75 Million
GroupMe was sold to Skype for $85 million in 2011. Shortly after that, GroupMe co-founder Steve Martocci started working on a new startup. Now we know that Martocci is working on a new music startup called Splice with Matt Aimonetti. Aimonetti used to be an engineer at LivingSocial and Sony PlayStation.
Splice has raised $2.75 million in seed funding led by Union Square Ventures with participation from True Ventures, Lerer Ventures, SV Angel, First Round Capital, Code Advisors, Rob Wiesenthal, David Tisch, and Seth Goldstein.
Splice has opened up the community site, blog, and wait list for private beta today. Splice makes it possible for electronic dance music creators to save, share, collaborate, and remix music. The revisions can be accessed from the cloud.
