Overcast announces expansion plans after €500k funding round – TechCentral.ie
Video collaboration platform Overcast is to expand to hire 70 people over the next three years after raising €500,000 in its latest funding round.
The company had previously raised €100,000 through angel investment and Enterprise Ireland’s Competitive Start Fund last year. Overcast has also received funding through Amazon’s Activate programme.
“Despite being a young company we have already attracted a number of blue chip clients such as the Daily Mail and Dublin City University,” said said Brodeur. “The funding will be used to expand our headcount to help with additional product development and also expand into new markets as companies around the world face the same challenges surrounding the management of video files.”TechCentral.ie
