BOSTON – Green Goose, a company that participated in the Betaspring incubator program and the Cambridge Innovation Center, has raised $500,000 from angel investors following a “killer pitch” at the Launch Conference in San Francisco last week, the Boston Business Journal reported on Monday.
Green Goose, originally called Sensible Self, uses tiny sensors and accelerometers on stickers or credit cards to track everyday behavior and record it online.
Founder Brian Krejcarek’s pitch at the Launch conference was so successful that two judges, Shervin Pishevar and Jay Levy, both invested $50,000 on the spot.
Investment directory AngelList picked up on the news and the company quickly reached half a million dollars, the BBJ said.
“AngelList sort of caught that excitement and built on it,” Krejcarek said, noting that Green Goose is currently developing a pilot program to be tested privately.
