Seed Equity Ventures, one of the sponsors of the Your Mark on the World Center and GoodCrowd.info, has noted exciting progress with two of its portfolio companies. The crowdfunding type investment bank for startups reported this week that two companies, DemoChimp and Micro Benefits, in which its investors had participated in seed rounds last year received large follow-on investments already this year. Utah-based Consensus, formerly DemoChimp, announced on April 5, 2016 that it had received a $4.2 million Series A funding round from Peak Ventures and super angel Nobutaka Mutaguchi. In a statement, Consensus explained: CONSENSUS makes it possible for sales and marketing professionals to create interactive customized demo videos that give each buyer an overview of a product’s value proposition. Buyers then rate the relative importance of video segments that explain different aspects of the offering’s value proposition according to their unique interests, revealing both the identity and motivation of each stakeholder. The CONSENSUS platform plays the videos in a personalized sequence, and at a level of detail tailored to each buyer’s interests. CONSENSUS’ proprietary Demolytics™ dashboard shows customers when a buyer watches their demo, what’s important to them and who they shared it with — so salespeople can tailor their messages to the buying group’s shared priorities.
