Who’s getting money?

Enertiv closed its $750,000 seed round, according to Betabeat. The energy-monitoring startup is not a Brooklyn-based company but it is a virtual member of Downtown’s Urban Future Lab.

FilmBot amended its previous $10,000 debt round to $70,000, according to an SEC filing. Since we last cited the company in this space it has posted a very basic website, where you can sign up to find out when it goes live.


Who’s making moves?

The Made In NY Media Center has launched the Envision Social Good Fellowship, in an effort “to create momentum for social change through storytelling.”

Farmigo has expanded into Hoboken and Jersey City.


Who’s getting buzz?

Farmigo also gets a nod from FortuneWe recently covered the company’s move to Gowanus.
