Independent professionals and employers who use the services of Solvate would be thrilled to know that the company has acquired $4M in Series B financing from RRE Ventures , DFJ Gotham, and their CEO Michael Paolucci. They intend to use the fresh funds to enhance Solvate’s user interface as well as to expand its marketplace of talents and clients.
CEO Michael Paolucci answers a few questions about Solvate in this e-interview:
Who are your competitors and how are you different from them?
From Google Docs and Microsoft Office Live, to Yammer and Chatter, it is clear that people no longer need to be in the same office to work together effectively. But those services support work among people who already know each other. Solvate facilitates work between people who heretofore have not met; we’re the trusted middleware between such parties to work from afar.
