Vigour.io, an Amsterdam, Netherlands-based development platform to build connected applications, raised €500k in seed funding.
Backers included hub:raum, the 8-week accelerator program of Deutsche Telekom that provides startups with funding, access to mentors, and co-working space, Linden Mobile Ventures, DG-i, and Hampus Jakobsson.
Co-founded by Ramon Duivenvoorden, Jim de Beer, and Marcus Besjes, who were joined by Youri Daamen and Leo Schmidt, the company has developed a platform that enables applications to run on any device. The solution consists of a client-side framework and an integrated server-side service that supports inter-client communication and stores, retrieves and spreads application data when needed.
The company’s first product is Vigour Video, a white-labeled template for media companies that aims to provide viewers with a solution to connect different devices into a unified video experience.
