Vancouver startup Omnisearch has secured a USD $450,000 pre-seed round from Menlo Park’s GoAhead Ventures.
Founded earlier this year, Omnisearch was started with the mission of making audio and video content searchable.
This company arose out of its co-founder’s frustration with the time-consuming nit-picking task of searching for an exact minute within an audio or video file.
Finding “stuff” inside any of your files can be a headache. That’s a problem that Omnisearch has eliminated. It lets you search for literally anything, regardless of file type, in a snap.
This focus has made it particularly popular in the booming edtech space, thanks to which Omnisearch has been growing at 20% month over month.
The product has expanded organically and now covers documents, images, presentations and more, making it the most complete and versatile product in the enterprise search space today.
Omnisearch was founded by two engineers, CEO Marin Smiljanic, a former engineer at Amazon and SingleStore (a Y Combinator alum), and CTO Matej Ferencevic, an early employee at Techstars alum Memgraph.
“We were incredibly impressed with the GoAhead team throughout the entire process, and their grasp of SaaS and enterprise software is superb. Moreover, their process was as swift, efficient, and founder-friendly as they get.” says Smiljanic. “All in all, we couldn’t be more excited to be working with the GoAhead team. The funding will enable us to strengthen our team, particularly in engineering and sales.”
“We’re thrilled to be a part of Omnisearch’s journey and to support them in their mission to revolutionize the $10B enterprise search market. We particularly liked Marin and Matej’s strong technical backgrounds and experience in both Big Tech and venture-backed startups”, said TK Mori, Managing Partner at GoAhead Ventures.
GoAhead Ventures is a venture capital firm founded by three Stanford alumni with over $100 million under management, and it focuses its investments on early-stage technology startups globally.
