Madison startup Curate Solutions Inc. has completed a $1.65 million seed-plus round of funding, said co-founder and chief executive officer Taralinda Willis.
The lead investor was Badger Fund of Funds’ Idea Fund of La Crosse, and Indianapolis- and Cincinnati-based venture capital firm Allos Ventures was a “significant contributor.”
Founded in 2016, Curate has developed artificial intelligence software used to gather information from public municipal meeting minutes and agendas to provide construction firms with early information about construction projects for which they may want to submit a bid. It has now been used by more than 125 businesses and associations across 21 states. The company now has 16 employees.
