Encore Alert (TechBUZZ Fall ’13) Acquired by Meltwater, relocates to San Francisco
Arlington-based marketing and PR analytics startup Encore Alert has been acquired by Meltwater, a San Francisco-based brand analytics and consulting firm, for an undisclosed amount. The three-year-old startup had previously raised $545,000 from a mix of angel investors and groups, most notably NextGen Venture Partners. Other local investors included the CIT GAP Fund, Clarabridge CEO Sid Banerjee, SwitchPitch founder Michael Goldstein, and WeddingWire (and NextGen) co-founder Sonny Ganguly. This acquisition though has its roots in Encore’s time in the 500 Startups accelerator program.
