SocialGuide Raises Seed Round for Social TV Venture
Brooklyn, New York-based SocialGuide, where TV viewers go to talk about TV shows as they air, has raised $1.5 million in seed funding, according to a press release. The seed round was run by Alex Zubillaga and angel investors. The company will use the money to build out its site, which is designed to foster social engagement between consumers and networks. “With more than half of the nearly 300 million Americans who watch TV having a second screen experience, the market is ripe for a social TV product that connects with consumers and networks,” said Alex Zubillaga in the statement.
