Airtame, a Danish startup that’s created a wireless screen sharing device for schools and businesses, has secured $6 million to expand its platform internationally. The funding came from new and existing investors, including Danish investment fund Vækstfonden and Danske Bank. Airtame helps classrooms and offices stay connected with those inside and outside the room, allowing wireless presentations on any device and digital signage on any screen. IT managers can run everything remotely. Last year was big for the startup. The launch of Airtame Cloud transformed the company from just a hardware device offering to a hardware-enabled SaaS platform. Five new major distribution partners in EMEA and APAC signed on, and the team opened its fourth international outpost in Los Angeles, joining existing offices in New York, Copenhagen and Budapest. CEO and co-founder Jonas Gyalokay says the software-hardware solution is already used by more than 20,000 customers around the world, powering over one million meetings and classes per month. Launched in 2014, Airtame has raised just over $17 million to date. Along with this new round, the company also announced that two former Siteimprove executives have joined the team, Martin Wagner as Chief Financial Officer and Sigurdur Orri Gudmundsson as Chief Commercial Officer.
