BitHound Raises $2 Million Seed Round from Michael Wekerle, BDC Capital, Others

BitHound has raised a seed round.

The financing, valued at $2 million, was led by Michael Wekerle of Difference Capital, along with BDC Capital and additional angel investors.

The Kitchener-based startup is behind a software analytics solution providing developers with the information required to deliver clean, efficient and maintainable code. The funding will “further accelerate the company’s impressive growth.”

“It’s not hard to write code. But it is hard to write high-quality, maintainable software,” explains Dan Silivestru, CEO of bitHound. “Our goal is to become a trusted member of a development team, providing valuable insights and actionable recommendations leading to great software.”

“This funding will propel us further into creating a tool where developers can use real-time predictive analysis to create the best software possible,” he added.

BitHound is redefining the way developers and management work together, creating a tool that will foster conversation among developer teams,” said Wekerle, one of the dragons on CBC’s Dragons’ Den.
