Sequoia’s Surge bets on video platform InVideo

… Rs 17.90 crore at current exchange rates) in funding led by Surge, the accelerator programme of global venture capital firm Sequoia Capital.

Video production and editing platform InVideo has raised $2.5 million (approximately Rs 17.90 crore at current exchange rates) in funding led by Surge, the accelerator programme of global venture capital firm Sequoia Capital.

Others that have invested in the company include angel investors Anand Chandrasekaran and Gokul Rajaram, InVideo said in a statement.

The San Francisco- and Mumbai-based startup said it will use the funds to grow its global audience, invests in its community and expands its product pipeline.

The latest investment takes the total funding InVideo has raised so far to a little over $3.2 million, it added.

Sanket Shah, co-founder and CEO at InVideo, said the startup was aiming to democratise the access to professional video software. “We are using AI to automate the entire video-making process so even beginners can create videos,” he said.

Previously, the video editing startup had raised around $750,000 in angel funding from Haresh Chawla, Snapdeal’s Kunal Bahl, Bigtree Entertainment’s Ashish Hemrajani and Times Internet’s Miten Sampat.

InVideo, operated by Abstrakt Video Pvt. Ltd, says its editing platform suggests real-time improvements with the help of an autocorrect assistant. Some of these suggestions include font and animation choices, and colour palettes. InVideo was part of Surge’s second cohort of 20 startups from across Southeast Asia and India.

The company offers a basic free service, with premium features being sold through a subscription model. Its platform also includes features such as drag-and-drop functionality, a large picture, and video library and formatting for different services such as Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, and WhatsApp.

InVideo claims it has a user base of more than one lakh customers across 150 countries, including companies such as AT&T, Sony Music, Reuters, CNN, and CNBC.

Surge’s investments

InVideo is the latest Surge-accelerated startup to receive funding, whether through the Sequoia arm or other investors. Mentors on Surge include Byju Raveendran of ed-tech startup Byju’s, Deepinder Goyal of food-technology platform Zomato, Ritesh Agarwal of hotel firm OYO, Kunal Shah of Cred, Ankiti Bose of Zilingo and Ashwini Asokan of Mad Street Den.

Last month, e-sports streaming and community platform Rheo raised $2 million (around Rs 14.34 crore) in seed funding from a clutch of investors including Lightspeed Venture Partners, Surge, Unacademy founders Gaurav Munjal and Roman Saini and former LinkedIn India country manager Mahesh Narayanan.

In December, software-as-a-service startup Seekify Technologies raised $1.5 million (around Rs 10.6 crore) in seed funding from Surge and angel investors such as Avatar Venture Partners founding partner Nishant Rao, 1mg co-founder Gaurav Agarwal, and HealthKart founder Sameer Maheshwari.

The funding will support the company’s continued international expansion in Europe and beyond, including making key hires in these markets.

Founded in 2013, Dealroom is an Amsterdam-based data and software platform, which shows worldwide intelligence about startups, innovation and venture capital investment. Dealroom is used by every player in the startup and tech industry to search and compare the performance characteristics of innovative companies, pull reports and track industry trends. Its reports have become the reference in the European startup landscape, having been featured in major publications such as the Economist, the Financial Times, the BBC, The New York Times and the Washington Post. Today, Dealroom has built up a community of 30,000 registered and active users, and is trusted by hundreds of paying customers including world-class corporates (Google, Stripe, EY, Deloitte, Amazon) and top-tier venture capital firms (Sequoia, Insight Partners, LocalGlobe, Accel Partners).

The Dealroom platform is run using a combination of manual research and automated tools, which incorporate AI, natural language processing, data science and APIs. Working together, these elements identify and process relevant company information and insights in real-time. Polished with expertise from external players like governments, hubs and VCs, Dealroom has created a data management network and interface that provides invaluable insights to anyone working in the industry.

“We spent the first six years honing our methodology, technology and relationships to establish Dealroom as the number one resource for data and research on European technology,” said Yoram Wijngaarde, founder and CEO of Dealroom. “Now that we are well established, we are thrilled to use this funding to make some key hires, expand our data capabilities, forge new partnerships and continue to build communities with local governments and other key players in the ecosystem.”

Tuesday Capital teams up with design powerhouse Frog to grab startups’ attention — and keep it

But Tuesday Capital, the San Francisco-based outfit formerly known as CrunchFund, thinks it has found a way. Today, the firm announced a new …

In a day and age when everyone seems to have their own seed-stage venture fund, it’s hard to stand out. But Tuesday Capital, the San Francisco-based outfit formerly known as CrunchFund, thinks it has found a way. Today, the firm announced a new partner in Frog, the renowned design firm whose past clients include the headset maker Oculus, among countless others.

The partnership dates back nearly four years. It was then that Tuesday’s cofounder and managing partner Pat Gallagher was introduced to FrogVentures, the design firm’s investment incubator.

P.J. Gunsagar, the CEO of one of Tuesday’s portfolio companies, KidAptive, had hired Frog to help this company — an online adaptive learning program for children — design a portal that parents could use to see how their children were progressing. Impressed with what they came up (Gunsager believes it helped KidAptive land its Series B round), he suggested that Gallager meet with Ethan Imboden, a former designer and the Frog division’s head.

It was apparently a match. In fact, soon after the two connected, Tuesday rebranded from CrunchFund. “They helped us with our own branding and to navigate around a lot of confusion” tied to the venture firm’s earliest connection to both TechCrunch and Crunchbase. (All three companies were cofounded by entrepreneur and investor Michael Arrington who has since moved on to form Arrington XRP Capital.)

“We were incredibly impressed with the quality of the marketing folks and the technologists and the branding folks,” says Gallagher, whose suggestion is tied to the belief that Tuesday is the most productive day of the week.

Before long, Gallagher and Imboden were sharing their networks and their deal flow. Now, out of that organic collaboration, the new partnership has been more formally integrated.

How it will work exactly: early-stage ventures will be eligible to receive investment from Tuesday Capital to engage Frog, giving the startups the option of covering the cost of their design projects with equity. Ostensibly, by making it easier for partners to access Frog’s services — which include brand, product, go-to-market strategies, digital product and connected hardware design — they’ll get to market faster and be stronger when they arrive.

To cement the deal, Tuesday purchased a share of FrogVentures’s venture portfolio. It now owns stakes formerly owned by Frog in eight companies, and Frog committed to become one of the largest limited partners in Tuesday’s current (fourth) fund so that it continues to get upside from those companies and future Tuesday startups with which it consults.

Imboden is also now a venture partner with Tuesday, sitting in on all of the firm’s partner calls and “integrating himself into our workflow,” says Gallagher. “When we talk about new investments, he’s now part of those conversations.”

Considering Frog’s past client list, that could prove a powerful perspective for Tuesday to have around the table.

Of course, Tuesday still has to battle its way to get the attention of top founders who are getting pulled in all directions by investors, both new and old. But the firm, which typically writes initial checks of between $250,000 and $500,000, suddenly has a a lot more to offer. “We’ve always tried to be additive to investor syndicates. We help with PR and media and content services.” Now, it can provide access to Frog, too.

It could certainly tip more deals in its direction. “If you need access to design services, if you need to talk with an industrial designer for a couple of hours, if you want an all-day seminar [alongside other portfolio companies]” Frog, with its vested interest in Tuesday, will be there, says Gallagher.
