Ontic Technologies, an Austin, TX-based protective intelligence technology platform, raised $4.65m in seed funding.
The round was led by Silverton Partners, with participation from Floodgate and Village Global.
Co-founded by Gagan Jain (Chief Technology Officer), Tom Kopecky (Chief Strategy Officer) and Lukas Quanstrom (Chief Executive Officer), Ontic provides a protective intelligence software platform, aggregating disparate data sources and providing a workflow that surfaces “pre-incident indicators” for acts of violence, mental health issues and behavior of concern. Its real-time, actionable insights allow security and resource teams to discover, investigate and collaborate on threats in order to protect executives, workplaces and schools.
The company, which works with Fortune 5000 companies and some of the leading educational institutions, intends to use the funds to further accelerate product development, customer acquisition, and strategic hiring – including the hiring of Mat Thompson, VP of Sales and Marketing.
