Chatbot messaging startup Sensay, a tempCFO client, has raised $4.5 million in seed fundraising. Sensay uses a bot to matches users with questions to other users who can answer them, aiming to connect “awesome humans.” The seed financing round was led by Norwest Venture Partners in addition to financing from Greycroft Partners, NHN, Sweet Capital, and Draper Associates. The closing of the seed round was announced on August 2.
While the platform began as SMS messaging only at its launch in May 2015, it has since expanded to Kik, tempCFO client Slack, WeChat, Telegram, and now Facebook Messenger. It plans to also be available through WhatsApp, Twitter, and Line. Users are able to communicate across platforms.
