UniqueSound, a Paris, France-based marketplace where professional content creators directly connect with curated music composers, raised $1M in seed funding.
Backers in the round, which was closed in September 2015, included Felix Capital, Foundry Group Angels, ISAI and angel investors Tobias Peggs, Frederic Montagnon and Denis Hennequin.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its team in NYC and Paris, increase sales efforts and continue to build the product.
Founded in in September 2014 by Romain Cochet, CEO, UniqueSound provides professional content creators, such as ad agencies, brands, video platforms, video game studios and video producers, with a platform for their music needs, hire composers for custom music or search ready-to-use-music by those composers.
The platform is used by Vice Media, TBWA or Verizon and over one thousand curated composers.
UniqueSound graduated from NUMA Paris in December 2014 and Techstars NYC in April 2015.
