Vognition Announces $700K Capital Raise from NJIT’s Highlander Angel Network (HAN)

Voice Portal Solution Delivers Unprecedented Advantage to IoT Manufacturers across All Platforms & Smart Devices

Newark, NJ/August 1, 2017:  The power of the human voice has never reached so far before Vognition, a software solution which provides seamless access and control across all voice assistants for IoT product manufacturers. Springing from the successful consumer trial and year-long live operation of the Company’s first customer, Nexia (a division of Ingersoll Rand), Vognition was poised for a well-deserved boost from investors. That came recently with a $700K investment from the Highlander Angel Network, a highly sought fund at NJIT (New Jersey Institute of Technology) comprised of a group of accredited investors which supports commercialization of technologies by providing investment capital, mentoring, and access to network resources.

Vognition’s Founder & CEO, Michael Liguori commented, “When voice activation entered the equation on smart technologies several years ago, as much as it was a giant leap forward it also resulted in a fragmented landscape in which platforms and devices wouldn’t or couldn’t speak the same language. To me, that wasn’t progress. I created Vognition as a maverick software solution that delivers super-fast integration across all boundaries. I like to think of it as the virtual plumbing for ALL voice controls. I couldn’t be more honored to have the support of HAN on this exciting journey.”

With this influx of new capital, Vognition’s business model will focus on expanding the Company’s reach through Sales & Marketing, as well as maintaining a peerless dedication to Customer Service.
