The sun is shining over VitalFields. TMT Investments announces it has put in a €100,000 convertible note giving Tallinn-based VitalFields a push into the new year to continue to develop their farm management solution. The company is run by CEO Martin Rand and CTO Vahur Meus.
Some of our readers may remember VitalFields by their old name, WeatherMe, when they participated in the pilot program of Estonia's Startup Wiseguys accelerator starting spring of 2012. As WeatherMe their focus was to provide accurate weather modeling for a certain location for anyone, with some focus on farmers, but as they've fleshed out the product they've moved closer to a comprehensive farm management solution.
Pipedrive, our favorite sales tool from Estonia, has announced a new $700k seed round from international investors. This brings the total amount of money raised from $300k in September 2011 to $1M as of today. The investors in the round were Satori Capital, TMT Investments and angel investors Andy McLoughlin and Christopher Muenchhoff. McLoughlin and Muenchhoff also participated in the round back in September 2011.
In addition to announcing the funding, Pipedrive is disclosing that it has signed up more than 1000 paying users in April this year. We're happy to be part of these paying users at ArcticStartup.
