Cyberpost, a Mississauga, Canada-based video and virtual mail system, raised $1.5m in seed funding.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth, further develop the technology and implement new marketing strategies.
Led by Ernie Loch, Cyberpost has created a cloud-based platform for entertainment, sports, community, businesses and other organizations to inform and build relationships with their respective audiences by sending offers through a virtual mailbox linked to their street address.
Merchants target markets by physical location and track product and service promotions and get real-time results.
They can pre-select what they are looking for and then to wait and see if any offers or promotions on Cyberpost deliver what they want. They can control the content and the sources of virtual mail they wish to receive, for virtually anything, including music, movies, products and services and any special deals for them, community services and alerts (like Amber Alert), etc.
Recipients can search, share, delete, and/or block virtual mail, save favorite information and offers, read and write reviews, etc.
Cyberpost is currently available in three languages (English, Spanish and French).
