Pickit, a Visby, Sweden-based image service startup, raised $4.6m in Series A funding.
Backers included Microsoft Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to expand operations.
Led by Mathias Björkholm, Pickit provides an image service hosted on Microsoft Azure for making professionally curated photos, icons, and illustrations available inside PowerPoint, Word, and Windows 10. The add-in allows users to source content aggregated from image providers, and also crowdsource custom images from Pickit’s global photographer community.
Established in 2013, the company has a US office in Redmond, Washington.
