NY-Based See.me Raises $1.5M in Seed Funding

Queens-based See.me just received $1.5 million in seed funding from Founder Collective, OATV, SV Angel, NYC Seed and Joshua Stylman. See.me is an online community where artists connect with each other, gain exposure for their work, earn grants, find exhibition opportunities and potential buyers. About 580,000 artists have added profiles and online portfolios to the site, according to VentureBeat.

William Etundi, co-founder and CEO, was a former art director at Saatchi & Saatchi and wanted to create an online space for artists that served them rather than advertisers.
