Crowd Technologies Ltd., a Birmingham, UK–based provider of social media risk management software, has received a financing of undisclosed amount.
Investors include the University of Warwick Science Park’s Minerva Business Angel Network and Midven, from its Early Advantage fund.
The company’s software, CrowdControlHQ, is designed to allow organisations (from small start-up businesses to larger international firms) to manage their social media outlets and protect their brand from monitoring Facebook pages for profanities to protecting access to social media pages when employees move on.
Crowd Technologies intends to use the funds to further develop its product, build up the team and expand into new markets.
Launched in 2010 by co-founders Calum Brannan and James Leavesley, the company has already attracted clients including Cadbury, Luminar Leisure, Decathalon and the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.
