The Friday Funding Roundup: Who Raised What In The Startup South This Week

by Mike Jordan

Not even the World Health Organization’s declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic could put a total halt on funding around the South this week. Among those startups who closed noteworthy rounds were three companies, each representing a different Southeastern state: Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Based in Pawleys Island, S.C., TFLiving, a mobile-first platform that provides tech-enabled amenities for residential and commercial propperties, announced Monday that it closed a $4.8 million series seed funding round led by Camber Creek with participation by Courtside Ventures and others. The platform lets owners, renters, residents, tenants and amenity providers coordinate, schedule and directly manage on-site wellness programs, pet care services, communal events and more on smartphones and tablets.

“With the backing of Camber Creek and other investors, we are now in prime position to elevate our platform and help build communities in residential and commercial buildings across the country,” TFLiving Founder & CEO Devin Wirt said in a statement.



With $2.8M in Series A funding from Jurassic Capital in nearby Durham, this Raleigh-based platform intends to help manufacturers get setup with B2B eCommerce. Corevist’s cloud-based Corevist Commerce offers prebuilt, configurable SAP ERP integration and is already helping global manufacturers process more than $1B transactions annually.


WorldWatch Plus

Naples Technology Vendors led the just-completed $2.9 million Series A round for this KYC (Know Your Customer) risk screening company. Using NLP (Natural Language Processing) AI, and machine learning, WorldWatch Plus “gathers, analyzes and transforms risk information from thousands of sources across the world in multiple languages into a searchable entity index distributed and available in real-time.” Its proprietary GRIX (Global Risk Information eXchange) platform identifies individuals or companies that constitute risks based on client profiles, lowering not only risk but cost.
