Divshot, a Los Angeles, California-based drag-and-drop visual builder for responsive web applications, raised $1.1m in seed funding.
The round was led by Rincon Venture Partners, with participation from 500 Startups, Daher Capital, Floodlight Ventures, Cooley LLP, Drummond Road Capital, and Eric Hammond.
Led by Michael Bleigh, cofounder and CEO, Divshot is a browser-based front-end development platform for responsive web applications that combines a drag-and-drop interface with professional code output.
Founded at Startup Weekend Kansas City in April 2012, the company has more than 40,000 users. Initially based on Bootstrap, the open source front-end framework developed by Twitter, Divshot also announced support for the ZURB Foundation and Ratchet mobile CSS frameworks. Currently in open public beta, it plans to launch as a paid service later this year.
The company is a recent graduate of Launchpad LA, the Santa Monica, California accelerator program founded by Mark Suster.
