Wisegate, an Austin, Texas-based advisory service for IT’s most senior professionals, completed a $4m Series B funding.
The round was led by Arcus Capital Partners with participation from existing investors Central Texas Angel Network, Atlanta Technology Angels, Golden Seeds, and Cowtown Angels.
The company, which has now raised $8m, intends to use the funds to hire people in the areas of product marketing, customer care and sales.
Led by Sara Gates, Founder and CEO, Wisegate leverages advanced matching and social technology, a trusted peer network and hands-on help to allow IT practitioners to connect to share best practices and answer IT’s questions, directly and without vendor influence. Wisegate curates these conversations into searchable content and formal reports as a service to its members, and often the outside world as well.
