Search technology company Q-Sensei has secured new investment funding led by Verizon Ventures, a strategic venture capital subsidiary of Verizon Communications. The new investments include follow-on funding from bm-t beteiligungsmanagement Thüringen, the private equity and venture capital arm of Germany’s Thüringer Aufbaubank, and certain private angel investors.

In another development, Richard N. Nottenburg, former CEO of Sonus Networks and chief strategy officer of Motorola Solutions, has joined Q-Sensei’s board. Q-Sensei was formed in 2007 out of the merger of the German-based social knowledge network Lalisio and the American search company QUASM.
