Raiven Capital, a Canada-US, early-stage venture fund, has invested in AI-driven platform Scopio, which allows artists from everywhere to sell their images – photography, art, illustrations – anywhere. Currently, artists from 150 countries are represented on the site.
Others joining the round include Lightspeed Ventures, DV Collective, and other angel investors: Gaingels, Joanne Bradford, former President of Honey, and VC Andrew Ogawa.
“Scopio’s mission is to empower artists by allowing them to monetise their work. The platform opens the door for artists – 99 per cent of them – that have not been able to generate revenue. CEO and Founder Christina Hawatmeh and her team have a strong vision we believe in,” said Raiven Capital Venture Partner Anna Shen.
“Raiven welcomes Christina and Nour, our first female founders, sourced by our partner, Anna Shen – a celebration of our diversity in action,” says Paul Dugsin, General Partner, Raiven Capital.
