The i2E-managed GrowOK Fund recently closed its first investment since the fund was established in 2011, placing $1 million in Oklahoma City-based Monscierge.
The i2E investment was part of a $2.05 million investment round joined by Oklahoma angel investors and Texas-based Affinity Angel Investment Fund I.
Founded in 2009, Monscierge is a hospitality industry technology company that provides hotel guests with local recommendations and facilitates communication between the hotel and the guest through a patented software application via touchscreen displays and mobile devices. Monscierge’s technology is already in use by hotels around the world and soon will be in more than 3,000 hotels worldwide in 90 countries.
“We’re going to use this new funding to build out our sales and marketing team,” said Marcus Robinson, Monscierge’s founder and CEO. “We took a lot of time to make sure our technology was scalable and reliable before we really started our sales and marketing efforts.”
