Winston Privacy, a Chicago, IL-based online privacy device company, secured a seed financing of undisclosed amount.
The round was led by New Stack Ventures, with participation from Founder Equity, M25 and Connetic Ventures.
The company will use the funding to support marketing and production in advance of its formal launch in Q4 of 2018.
Led by Richard Stokes, founder, Winston Privacy has developed technology to provide consumers with comprehensive online privacy and data protection for devices both in and out of the home.
Winston is a device that sits in line with a home router, providing online privacy and protection from spying and identity theft through one product. A single device in the home can protect all connected devices, including computers, tablets, phones and smart devices, while increasing browser speed.
The product is scheduled to be available for purchase in late 2018.
