Denver-based CRM and big data company Spekit has secured $2.5 million in seed funding, according to company database Crunchbase, topping the city’s recent funding headlines. The cash infusion was announced October 1 and led by Bonfire Ventures.
According to its Crunchbase profile, "In today's rapidly changing SaaS and remote-led workplace, the average employee has nine customized applications they use every day, while companies have over 150 to manage. The problem? These applications are constantly changing due to vendor-releases functionality (4x) per year and internal process changes, creating a training nightmare of low adoption and poor data quality."
The two-year-old startup also raised a $350,000 angel round in 2018.
The round brings total funding raised by Denver companies in education over the past month to $2.9 million.
In other local funding news, education company Guild Education announced a funding round on October 4, financed by Stephen Curry.
According to Crunchbase, "Guild Education's lifelong learning platform offers classes, programs and degrees for working adults, with a path for them to move forward in their education and career. Guild offers these adults support from start to finish, with their technology platform for discovery, learning and organizing the experience, and extra support with their tech-enabled student advising model. Founded in 2015, the company is headquartered in Denver."
Founded in 2015, the company has raised four previous rounds, including a $40 million Series C round in 2018.
