Filtrbox is a service I reviewed an talked about back last summer over at Mashable. Essentially, it’s a tool designed for PR folks and journalists who specialize in beats or are looking to know all they can about a specific set of keywords and topics. I enjoyed testing out the service as well as talking with founder and president Ari Newman.
Today, the company announced it’s closure of a $1.4 million Series A funding round and the launch of an upgrade called Flitrbox G2. The funding round was led by Flywheel Ventures and True Ventures at the end of last year.
The service is free to use, with premium account upgrades available at $10/month, something from my testing shows was well worth the cost.
