- Cincinnati, OH,-based startup Ahalogy has announced an $8 million round of venture funding and debt to help build its Pinterest software.
- Ahalogy has utilized Pinterest's Marketing Developer Partners program to build deeper integration into the platform.
- The startup provides software to more than 1,000 publishers and 40 different marketers, including Kraft, Hallmark, Pepsi, Procter & Gamble, and Kellogg’s to help them manage their Pinterest presence.
Although Pinterest is just beginning its monetization journey, it has the advantage of looking to other major social networks as examples. Ahalogy recently hired an M&A head to handle any acquisition strategy. The round of funding should help Ahalogy better service clients and increase it value. As a leader of the pack, the startup could pave the way for more companies building integration into the Pinterest platform.
