Stevie was founded in October 2011, with a seed round of $600k from angel investors, including Jeff Pulver, Gigi Levy and Internet Media Group. Since then, Stevie has graduated in September from the first Microsoft Accelerator for Windows Azure program for innovative startups in Tel Aviv, Israel, and launched on stage as a finalist at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC 2012. Stevie was selected as the winner of the MIPCube Lab competition at the MIPTV conference in Cannes in April 2013. An ‘A round’ funding secured from Horizon Ventures in December 2012 has raised Stevie’s total capital to $2.1 million.
