Voxel, a Silicon Valley-based startup that develops a platform to virtualizes apps to the cloud, raised $1.6m in seed funding.
Backers included First Round Capital, Pinnacle Ventures, Sherpalo Ventures and former Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha, vice president of Kindle at Amazon David Limp and co-founder of Tandem Ventures Joyo Wijaya.
Co-founded by Y Combinator alumni David Zhao (CEO), Tim Cheng (CTO) and Russ d’Sa (CPO), Voxel is developing a platform that virtualizes apps to the cloud, where they can be streamed to any device rather than downloaded. Apps are streamed instantly from the cloud with no data stored on the device.
Voxel is currently available on the iPhone and iPad with the company expecting Android support to be available in the near future.
