Blink Identity raises $1.5m in funding round
Austin-based startup Blink Identity just raised $1.5m during a funding round; investors include Live Nation, Techstars and Sinai Ventures.
The company's focus is on "facial recognition at scale" with an emphasis currently on live events. Indeed, identifying people as they walk past its scanners, can help checking that they have bought tickets without having to slow down the queue with a manual-checking process.
Blink Identity says it’s also working with Live Nation to “leverage early pilot programs in a variety of venues”, following its participation in Techstars Music.
