Vionic Raises Money to Take on the Social Offer Market
Vionic, a social media deals platform that enables brands to offer deals on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, has raised $900,000 from unnamed investors. "We are thrilled to offer our proprietary Deal Maker technology to help drive new customers and cash flow for enterprise companies, agencies, and SMBs,” says Kosta Gara, Vionic founder and CEO. “They will join clients such as The UPS Store, Office Max Mexico, and Pure Barre, as well as thousands of successful brands across North America. As social media matures, business owners are looking for ways to monetize on time already invested in building an online audience. Many have grown frustrated by the lack of ROI. Our tools are designed to help small businesses reap the rewards of social media." With the additional funding, Marie DeOrio has joined as vice president of marketing. DeOrio, a Duke graduate, has held marketing roles at various technology startups. Board members include Jeff Donahue, former chief financial officer for notable Southern California tech firms, including Ostendo, EMN8, and Accordent and two-term retired Mexican Congressman Benjamin Gonzalez Roaro.
