D.C. Tech Quote of the Week

“It is clear that social media has played a huge role in spreading harmful narratives that are driven by groups or individual creators. Corporations, individuals and brands are often implicated in these narratives, but until now, they had no predictable way of catching the narrative before it was too late. By applying AI and ML to these complex mediums, we enable our customers to understand the growth of specific narratives and make data-informed decisions to stay ahead of the threats and opportunities.” — Pendulum’s CEO and co-founder Mark Listes

Pendulum got $5.9M in seed funding. The company uses machine learning and AI to track misinformation on social media, allowing companies and organizations to get ahead of false narratives. A spin-out from Madrona Venture Labs, Pendulum will use the funding to grow its team and expand its platform. [Built In DC]

Joget raised $2.2M. The pre-Series A funding round will allow the open-source no-code/low-code application development platform to further expand its partner program worldwide and enhance cloud offerings. Joget’s platform allows businesses to build enterprise applications with a visual drag-and-drop approach. This no-code/low-code approach helps users to collaborate and accelerate application development in a user-friendly way. [PR Newswire]
