Who is in building mode

It was a quiet week for the Southeast venture world, with little noise for companies announcing major rounds. But that doesn’t mean it has been a quiet week across the startup community. Here are the teams in growth mode right now:

* Fanbase, an Atlanta-based social media livestreaming startup, rolled out its new Fanbase Audio feature on web and mobile devices. This means that listeners don’t have to download the app in order to connect with content. Want to see the feature in action and catch up on the Super Bowl news? Here is a link to check out.
