This morning Arist, a start-up that offers software allowing other companies to use SMS-based training to staff, revealed that it has actually extended its seed round to $3.9 million after adding $2 million to its prior raise.
TechCrunch has covered the business modestly prior to this seed-extension, keeping in mind that it belonged to the CRV-backed Liftoff List, and reporting on some of its business details when it took part in a recent Y Combinator demonstration day.
Something that stood apart in our notes on the business when it presented at the accelerator’s graduation event was its economics, with our piece noting that the startup “already [has] a number of big ticket clients and [says it] will quickly be profitable.” Profitable is just not a word TechCrunch hears typically when it concerns early-stage, high-growth companies.
When the business selected up more capital, we chose up the phone. TechCrunch talked to the business’s starting team, including Maxine Anderson, the business’s existing COO; Ryan Laverty, its president; and Michael Ioffe, its CEO, about its most current round.
