Ink, the company behind Filepicker.io, has closed a $1.8 million seed funding round. The round was led by Andreessen Horowitz and Highland Capital Partners.
Ink builds middleware that lets devices, applications, and software talk to each other, irrespective of which vendors built them. Ink was originally a Y Combinator company, winning the MIT $100K Entrepreneurship Competition in 2012.
Ink investors include SV Angel, Google board member Ram Shriram, Geoff Ralston (La La Media), Aaron Iba (Y Combinator), Pejman Nozad (Amidzad), Facebook VP of Business Development and Monetization Dan Rose, Ullas Naik (Streamlined Ventures), Hamid Barkhordar, Bobby Yazdani (Saba Software), Niall Browne (Workday), and Data Collective.
Ink will be introducing an improved Ink File Picker and new development product in July 2013, says the company.
