$750k, Turnstone, and the Mayor….what a day!

Yesterday was an off-beat day here at Fracture.  We had visitors from all over the place, including a couple local tv stations, friends from the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce, Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe, and some other surprise guests.  Why all the excitement? Well, the big news was that we just closed a $750K round of investment from the Tamiami Angel Fund!  Abhi and Alex have been working hard on that and they were happy to cross that hurdle. The other …
