South Carolina Research Authority’s investment affiliate, SC Launch Inc., has invested in Pixlmob. The $200,000 investment will help the Greenville-based startup continue growing its company, which provides an easier way for real estate photographers and videographers to list high-quality property images.
Pixlmob became an SCRA Member Company in July 2022 and received a $50,000 Acceleration Grant. They became an SC Launch Inc. Portfolio Company with this investment.
After working in the real estate industry and seeing the problems that photographers and videographers had securing high-resolution images and reels, the Pixlmob team created a software solution that connects them to verified editors with the skills to provide image enhancements that improve the quality and visibility of their photos and videos.
“Pixlmob integrated the most-needed services into their offerings. Customers have access to verified editors, who are available 24/7, a secure payment portal, and a post-production workflow (with messaging capabilities) that allows them to track their progress,” said SC Launch Inc. Executive Director Matt Bell.
“I saw how videographers and photographers could not meet the daily demands of listing properties. Our services streamline this process without the hassle of them having to find editors and worry about their credibility and turnaround time. Having partners like the teams at SCRA and SC Launch Inc. has been crucial to helping us get to the next stage in our growth,” said Co-Founder and CEO Moses Nickerson.
“Pixlmob’s software platform has the potential to revolutionize real estate listing services, and we’re excited to see them grow and scale the company,” said SCRA President and CEO Bob Quinn.
In addition to photo and video editing services, Pixlmob helps editors earn more money by providing a platform for them to sell their services, attract more customers, and get paid easily.
