Last month, YEC member Susan Tynan's company Framebridge raised an impressive $7.7 million Series A. The round was led by NEA, Revolution Ventures and Tim O'Shaugnessy (co-founder and former CEO of LivingSocial).
Launched in 2014, Framebridge is an online custom framing startup that leverages e-commerce, logistics and in-house production to shake up the personal framing market. Having now raised over $11 million to date, Framebridge plans to use this funding to further their product development and improve their core platform online. The idea is to increase customization options while also introducing market-ready products and building out their business and engineering teams.
"Today's investment allows us to continue to innovate our digital experience and expand our production capabilities so that framing with Framebridge is even easier," said CEO Susan Tynan in this release.
From Dayna Grayson, Partner at NEA, in the same release: "Consumers have found the traditional custom framing experience to be burdensome and off-putting, but Framebridge is revolutionizing the industry by making it fun, seamless and easy. They're creating a brand that customers love, and empowering consumers to view custom framing as an accessible option for their art and photographs."
