Northgate Capital led the round, along with participation from existing investors General Catalyst Partners and Mohr Davidow Ventures. To date, Visible Measures has raised over $29 million.
Founded in 2005, Visible Measures tracks more than 100 million videos across 150+ video sharing sites. The company announced in September of 2008, that MTV Networks adopted its services for Internet video measurement.
A great example of Visible Measures’ services can be seen in the case study of the viral Nike video in which Kobe Bryant jumps over a speeding car. Visible Measures identified that the video was placed in over 250 unique locations across the Web. Nike, placed the video in only 12 of those locations. Visible Measures also tracked the video was viewed 16 million times and attracted 35,000 comments. The company can identify whether those views were the original Nike seeds, or viral copies.
The Boston based company, plans to use the funding to continue growth collaborating with large brand marketers and video publishers.
