AirDeck raises $3.4M to transform communication by adding voice and video narration to documents and presentations online
Madison, Wisconsin, December 1, 2020 – AirDeck, Inc, an online platform that helps users create narrated presentations and documents for on-demand viewing, announces the company has raised $3,400,000 in venture capital funding led by Rock River Capital Partners and Cultivation Capital with participation from Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund and Winnebago Seed Fund. The new funding will be used to expand the company’s sales and marketing teams and continue platform innovation.
AirDeck solves some of the biggest challenges in business communication today. Companies waste countless hours going back and forth reviewing documents, proposals, contracts, and presentations. Scheduling “live” meetings is a logistical nightmare and sending flat presentations and documents without any context is ineffective when trying to convey your message. As the world becomes more remote and distracted, effective communication is now more important than ever. AirDeck was created so users can add verbal or video recordings to increase engagement when sending documents and presentations on-demand.
Jason Weaver, founder and CEO of AirDeck said, “AirDeck has seen tremendous growth since launching the company this year. It’s amazing to see immediate customer adoption within a variety of industries. This round of funding will allow us to further our platform vision and expand our team.”
“We are excited to invest in such an innovative platform. AirDeck is changing document communication as we know it. Business agreements, pitch decks, webinars, and sales contracts can now all be sent with narration. It’s amazing to see it in action”, said Andy Walker, Partner, Rock River Capital Partners.
“Workers need a better asynchronous communication solution that also facilitates document engagement; And Airdeck is delivering it, with a cloud platform that is both powerful and easy-to-use. We’re excited to help get this into the hands of more customers.” Paul Meier, Principal at Cultivation Capital
