Madison, WI-based OpenHomes, a startup that helps people buy and sell homes online, has raised $180,000 in seed funds that will help it expand staff and develop a mobile app, the company said today.
Investors include Milwaukee-based CSA Partners, Oshkosh, WI-based Angels on the Water, Wisconsin startup accelerator Gener8tor, and individuals including Mark Bakken, CEO of Madison-based Nordic Consulting. OpenHomes went through Gener8tor’s program last summer. It technically closed the seed funding round in December, but made the announcement today, as it seeks additional investment from BrightStar Wisconsin Foundation and prepares to hire more staff, OpenHomes founder and CEO Kelda Roys said.
