Emo Labs Raises $1.5 Million

Jason Carlson, CEO of Waltham, MA-based Emo Labs, confirmed today that the audio technology company has collected $1.5 million in the first tranche of a planned $2.7 million venture funding round, as indicated by regulatory documents filed December 11. Emo is developing transparent loudspeakers that attach to the front of large displays, greatly improving the sound produced by flat-screen televisions. Carlson says the new funds came from current investors; the company is backed by Polaris Venture Partners, the Venture Capital Fund of New England, and a number of angel investors.
