LiveStories raises $10 million to democratize civic data



New Power

New content and visualization startups are trying to make data more accessible and prominent in storytelling

LiveStories at the 2017 WPHA Conference

Call it a “fake news” counter-movement. A raft of content and visualization startups are trying to make data more accessible and prominent in storytelling.

Seattle-based LiveStories, launched in 2013, has raised $10 million to give public employees “drag and drop” data capabilities. “It gives the power to non-technical people who might be in communication or just general staff,” founder Adnan Mahmud says.

Data visualization resource Graffiti was just selected for seed funding from Matter Ventures, while public-records search database Vigilant was seeded by New Media Ventures.

LiveStories has more than 100 customers, mostly in the public sector. Ignition Partners, True Ventures, and Founders Co-Op backed the round.
