Streem, a Portland, Ore.-based tech platform connecting home service professionals to their customers through on-demand video streaming, raised $1.7m in seed funding.
Backers included GVR Fund, Flying Fish, Columbia Ventures Corp, Rogue Venture Partners, Curious Capital, betaworks ventures, Greycroft, GGV Capital and General Catalyst AR Fund.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate product development, grow strategic partnerships, bolster marketing initiatives and expand its team.
Led by Ryan Fink, CEO & co-founder, and Jef Holove, Chief Operating Officer, Streem has created a mobile platform that uses a combination of augmented reality (AR), computer vision and machine learning to enable home service professionals to diagnose, quote and perform work — from repairs to remodels.
The platform features include:
– On-demand, cross platform video calling that connects home service professionals to consumers
– A digital toolbox to take measurements, save notes and guide the conversation with a laser pointer and arrows anchored to the 3D map of the space created during the Streem call
– Computer vision that accurately identifies objects, brands, models and serial numbers
– Video recording, image and 3D data capture capabilities to aid clarity and accountability in quotes and contracts
