It was only a short 3 months ago that Matt Lauzon announced that his Boston based company, Dunwello, had successfully closed a seed funding round in which he raised $1.4 million from major investors. High up on that list was the VegasTechFund alongside NextView Ventures, BOLDstart Ventures, G20 Ventures, Bridge Boys, and Axel Bachira.
Lauzon has also announced that Dunwello raised a total of $1.8 million in funding to date and will be accepting a $250,000 investment from CommonAngels. But what’s most interesting about this story is the fact that the VegasTechFund had their attention drawn all the way from their own backyard to Boston.
“Yes, VegasTechFund is an investor in Dunwello and participated in our seed round. They have been a very helpful sounding board and have helped plug us in to the #VegasTech community,” says Lauzon.
But the VegasTechFund’s involvement goes beyond a surface level investment for the company that specializes in helping every person at every company be both happy and productive at work.
“Over the last few years I’ve gotten to know a variety of people from the #VegasTech community and have long wanted to find a way to be a part of it,” says Lauzon. “My hope is to eventually have part of our team working out of an office in Downtown Vegas. We were also looking for people who believed in the “why” behind our business, and Andy White was someone we felt very aligned with,” says Lauzon.
