Boombotix, the San Francisco-based wearable audio company merging next-gen audio hardware and software, today announced a $4 million strategic investment from new and existing investors. New investors include Social+, Baseline, Red Hills, Great Oaks and Grishin Robotics, while existing investors participating in the round include Walden Venture Capital and David Dolby.
Kickstarter funding will often lead to the more traditional kind, and in the case of Boombotix, that’s exactly what happened. The California startup raised $17,000 for its music syncing app, which allows people to synchronize playback of music across multiple devices using mobile networks, and nearly $130,000 for its Boombot Rex mobile Bluetooth action-ready portable speaker. Now, it has also raised $4 million in venture funding from Social+ Capital, Baseline, Red Hills and many others. May of its partners in this round are strategic in nature, and Boombotix co-founder Lief Storer says they were chosen for their ability to help build the brand.
