Fliptu Gets $1.2M For Social Aggregation Tools

Los Angeles-based Fliptu, the developer of social aggregation tools for music and entertainment brands, has raised $1.2M in a seed funding round, the company said Friday. The startup--led by Jeremy Gocke--said the funding came from Scout Ventures, Rick Dalzell (former Amazon CIO), Rich Heise (early Groupon investor), Hivers & Strivers, Kelly Perdew, and other angels. The company said it will use the funds to bolster its product team and expand into new verticals. Fliptu offers up a social aggregation platform which helps brands pull together related content from fans and others, in a highly visual way, allowing that social stream to be used in social campaigns.
