Portland Seed Fund and TechStars Seattle alum Vizify lands $1.2 million

The funding environment for Portland startups ended the year on a strong note. And now it’s beginning on a strong note as well.

TechCrunch is reporting that Vizify—a Portland startup that did parallel accelerator stints at Portland Seed Fund and TechStars Seattle—has landed $1.2 million in funding.

Vizify, a social tool for creating a great first impression online and a recent grad of TechStars‘ Seattle accelerator program, is announcing today that it has raised $1.2 million in seed funding from a group of entrepreneurs and investors, which includes Picnik Founder Jonathan Sposato, Founder and Managing Director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Tim Draper, Bill McAleer of Voyager Capital, and Co-founder of Feedburner Matt Shobe, among others. Vizify is also a member of the inaugural class of the Portland Seed Fund, a seed fund and 90-day accelerator program that invests $25,000 in six to eight Oregonian companies every six months.
