Washington, DC – Veenome, a DC-based developer of automated video recognition technology that identifies products, objects and brands in videos, has raised $500,000 in a round of seed funding, The Washington Post reported. The round included investments from local angels Jason Shrensky, Cal LaRoche and Bob Koran, among others. The company’s technology is designed to identify and tag objects in web and mobile videos, allowing viewers to click on specific items and be taken to a retailer’s website. Veenome was founded earlier this year by chief executive officer Kevin Lelane, the former director of mobile at PointAbout, and chief technology officer David Geller, the former chief executive officer of Amazing Media and Plexstar.
