SimpleRegistry Receives Funding From CincyTech

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

SimpleRegistry, a Web-based service that allows users a single gift registry from multiple retailers, has received a $150,000 investment from CincyTech as part of a larger seed-stage funding round. “Instead of having 100 items registered at a few different stores and being limited to only what those few have to offer, SimpleRegistry allows a couple or a mom-to-be to register 100 different items at 100 different stores on one registry,” said Tony Alexander, co-founder and CEO of SimpleRegistry. “They also can split expensive gifts into amounts they are more likely to receive.

Alexander and two partners — Brandon Warner and Chris Kolik — launched SimpleRegistry in late 2010 and grew it to 3,000 members by the end of 2011, mostly through word of mouth, says the company.

The team already has launched a startup, Traveler’s Joy, an online honeymoon registry, which is eight years old.

SimpleRegistry is CincyTech’s 32nd investment.

CincyTech is a public-private venture development organization that invests in startup businesses in high-tech industries in Southwest Ohio.
