London's Crowd Vision Closes New Funding Round
London-based crowd analytics software specialist, Crowd Vision announced July 30 that it has closed a "substantial" funding round with participation from a syndicate of London Business Angels Investors and the Angel Cofund. The amount raised was not specified. The company said the money will enable the business to expand international sales activities and execute product development plans.
Crowd Vision makes a software product that extracts crowd insights from video feeds in busy locations, enabling customers to understand and intervene in their crowds. The software has already been deployed at scale in Mecca where it helps to keep millions of pilgrims safe as they attend the Hajj. Beyond crowd safety it can provide accurate crowd counts, improve pedestrian flows and help businesses optimise their operations based on live and accurate crowding data.
