We are so thrilled to be congratulating Zodiac on their $3M raise led by First Round Capital, with participation from Metamorphic Ventures, Felicis Ventures, and Western Technology Investment.

It seems like just yesterday when we welcomed Zodiac to the DRF community and were discussing how to best rebrand and launch their platform. From Justin, Zodiac’s CTO, “We are incredibly grateful for the support DRF gave us during the first days of the company. They were the first investors to really get excited about what we are building and provided us with the resources to help bring our first MVP to a real product.”

In three short months, Zodiac was able to not only raise a substantial round, but also launch a fresh new brand and platform that went live today at zodiacmetrics.com. This in itself is a testament to why we originally invested in the company. Artem, Peter, Dan and Justin are one of the most impressive founding teams that we have met and have continued to impress us with their dedication to the mission of helping their clients better understand their customers.

This is also a big milestone for us as Zodiac is the first company to be backed by both Dorm Room Fund and First Round. In the past, Dorm Room Fund portfolio companies have gone on to raise follow-on funding from investors such as Google Ventures, Spark Capital, and Union Square Ventures, and we’re excited to now officially have First Round join us.
