Platterz, a Toronto, Canada-based corporate catering platform that uses machine learning technology to automate ordering food for the office, closed a $6.7m seed funding.
Backers included AltaIR Capital, Globalive Capital, Kevin Kimsa, Dennis Bennie, Ran Makavy and Oren Zeev.
The company will use the new funds to expand its market presence, accelerate product and machine learning development, and amplify sales and marketing.
Led by Eran Henig, Co-founder & CEO, and Yishay Waxman, Co-founder and President, Platterz simplifies the food ordering process with proprietary machine learning technology that recommends custom menus for any event or meeting. Launched in January 2016, the platform is now being routinely used by over 1000 Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo businesses, including Apple, Salesforce, LinkedIn, Deloitte, TD and Shopify.
The company has a team of 25 and expects to double that number over the next year.
