PALO ALTO, Calif., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Entefy closes more than $2 million in its Series AA round just two months after its co-founder, Brienne Ghafourifar, became the youngest college graduate to raise a million dollars in venture funding at age 17.
“It’s incredibly humbling and inspiring to be part of this journey with our amazing group of investors and advisors, not to mention, a truly exceptional team. Entefy has the potential to make a real impact on people’s lives, and we’re committed to making that happen,” Brienne said.
The future of conversation is all about the freedom to communicate however and whenever without worrying about devices, operating systems, or formats (email, text, voice, video, and social). Entefy is leveraging technology in new ways to better manage and intelligently thread conversations across a variety of popular protocols. Imagine all your conversations organized around the people you want to connect with and what you want to say, not scattered across multiple communication and social apps.
Brienne’s brother and co-founder Alston added, “Entefy is pushing the boundaries of technology and propelling our digital communication to the next level. We’re really excited about the growing momentum and are truly grateful for all the incredible support.”
Having met this funding milestone, the duo looks forward to continuing development of an awesome product, expanding the team, and preparing for launch.
