Workstreamer, a business listening platform secured $3.5 million in funding in a round of Series A funding. The new funds will be used to accelerate the growth of its service, which focuses on monetizing real-time business information. The funding round was led by Austin Ventures, a Texas-based equity firm with a focus on Internet and information services.
The workstreamer service lets users "listen" to a variety of information sources, collecting and filtering content to deliver the most relevant information as it becomes available. It is currently in public beta and is available for free from the company's site.
