This week’s episode of “WisBusiness: The Podcast” is with Craig Doriot, CEO for an Appleton-based animation startup called Dodles.

“Dodles is a social animation platform, and that means we make it really easy for people to animate, even if you have no artistic abilities,” he said. “We really try to reinvent the animation process to simplify it, and make it mobile-friendly so people can do this right form their phones.”

Doriot got the company started with $2 million of his own money. Last year, local investors contributed to a $300,000 funding round, and a $600,000 is currently underway with just over $450,000 raised. Listen to the podcast here.
