According to Roy, the extra moolah comes at a time when the company’s business model is proving its worth.
“Yellowdig is rapidly signing long-term contracts with many top US universities and has a very healthy sales pipeline,” Roy said in a company press release. “This additional investment from QB1 and Rosecliff will be used to accelerate business development and to further build out our technology platform.”
The company is also putting the resources toward a New York City office, and has added Akiba Covitz to its senior management team, as Head of Business Development.
