Family-centric mobile content resource Famigo has closed $1 million in seed financing, further evidence that mobile is solidly in the mainstream. The round was led by Silverton Partners, with participation from Zilker Ventures, Liahona Ventures and Capital Factory.
Famigo provides a central destination for families to discover and manage mobile content in a safe way and with expert guidance. The company said the financing will be used to advance its platform capabilities and extend its reach.
“Kids are increasingly adept at using new technologies and parents suffer from an enormous responsibility to vet every purchase and experience,” said Famigo CEO Q Beck. “It doesn’t have to be that way: Famigo helps parents identify quality content, enforce their personal guidelines and better manage the mobile lives of their families.”
Silverton is an early-stage venture capital firm focused on Texas-based companies. Famigo is based in Austin.
