Boston Tech Roundup: NetProspex, Lucidity Lights, Ubiquitous Energy
We’ve got financing deals across business software, consumer products, cleantech, and transportation to report in this weekly collection of innovation tidbits:
—NetProspex, a provider of data software for marketing customers, has raised another $13 million. The Series C round was led by Spring Lake Equity Partners, and ups the company’s total fundraising to $27 million. Edison Ventures and other previous backers returned for the new round, Waltham-based NetProspex said in a press release.
—Lucidity Lights, a Cambridge-based developer of next-generation lightbulbs, has filed paperwork for a new $10.8 million equity financing. The company is headed by IdeaPaint founder John Goscha, but it’s staying under the radar—it doesn’t have a website, and a spokesman declined comment. One investor is New York-based New Legacy Capital. There’s some more detail in this Boston Globe story from 2012.
—Ubiquitous Energy, a Cambridge-based solar-energy materials startup, has filed SEC paperwork for a $5.2 million equity investment. The company, which has deep MIT ties, is developing coatings that it says could generate electricity from everyday surfaces, including windows. Much more detail in this story from Technology Review.
—GroupZOOM, a Cambridge-based startup that has previously tested group bus service for college students heading out on spring break, reports that it’s raised $3 million from various private investors. The announcement comes in a Boston Globe story profiling the company’s upcoming service, Bridj, which it says will attempt to create private bus service around Boston by coordinating riders via a smartphone app.
