Blink Identity, an Austin, Texas based startup that has developed identity-in-motion technology, raised $1.5M in seed funding.
The round was led by Sinai Ventures with participation from Live Nation, Techstars, and other live entertainment related funds.
Co-founded by Mary Haskett and Dr. Alex Kilpatrick, Blink Identity provides identity-in-motion technology that identifies people as they walk past a sensor at full walking speed, enabling identification to provide access control and personalized customer experiences.
The company, which completed the Techstars Music Accelerator in Los Angeles this past spring, is bringing face recognition technology to live event venues and commercial spaces.
Blink has secured an initial partnership with Live Nation, the world’s largest entertainment company, to leverage early pilot programs in a variety of venues.
