$1.7M for MotherKnows

MotherKnows, a Menlo Park, CA-based startup building an online health record system for parents, said today that it has raised $1.7 million in seed funding. Among the startup’s backers are First Round Capital, Giza Ventures, Charles River Ventures, The Band of Angels, former Google Health product manager Maneesh Arora, and other individual investors. “MotherKnows is the first product specifically for parents that will collect and post all health data to a secure website and mobile app to help them stay on top of immunizations and share this information with schools, camps and caregivers as well as remain prepared for an emergency,” the company said in a statement. The startup will use the funds to complete development of its Web and mobile products, co-founder Hesky Kutscher said.
