Indoor maps company Cartogram was featured in an article on Geekwire titled, “Cartogram raises more cash from Cyanogen founder, Bing Maps vet for mapping tech startup“. We are thrilled with the article (and the fundraising the article writes about. From the article:
The Seattle-area startup just raised another round of funding from investors like Cyanogen founder Steve Kondik; former Bing Maps manger Sandeep Singhal; and a bevy of other firms across the U.S. It also recently won a $100,000 first place prize at the Flywheel Investment Conference. Total funding to date is now $1.8 million.
Founded in 2013, Cartogram provides indoor and outdoor mapping services that help people find their way around everything from basketball arenas to hospitals. The startup sells app-based products and also integrates with existing websites. It uses a combination of Bluetooth positioning, GPS, active Wi-Fi scanning, and passive Wi-Fi Cartogram’s to track location and provide turn-by-turn directions.
Customers like the Sacramento Kings or Vidant Medical Center use Cartogram with beacon technology, while also adding icons, labels, containers, regions, and waypoints on a map with their own branding. Cartogram also developed a chatbot that lets users easily find a given location.
Cartogram has been in business since 2014, and we’re proud of our growth and our product. From our beginnings in CEO and Founder Will’s apartment to our current offices in downtown Bellevue, Wash. and our staff of 20, we’re proud of where we came from and excited about the projects that we have on the horizon.
