Newtown Partners was our lead investor and the first to join our pre-Series A round. I would add that this relationship/transaction went 100% online until we closed the deal. I wanted to thank you guys for the opportunity, knowing this was a direct result of the VC4A exposure and mentorship program. Thanks again for your support, I am proud to be part of the VC4A community.
