It’s official, Veda Data Solutions CEO Meghan Buck is now a part of an elite group in D.C. of female founders who have raised at least $1 million in funding.
Buck walked out with the D.C. chapter of the Vinetta Project‘s grand prize of $20,000 Thursday night. Buck competed amongst a group of four finalists and a semifinalist pitch competition in March in Vinetta’s annual venture showcase competition for local women founders.
In September, Veda also closed a $1 million seed round led by New Dominion Angels, and in 2016, the company received $200,000 from undisclosed investors. The latest funding from Vinetta brings her total funding for Veda Data to $1.2 million.
“Being completely honest, I’m sort of awe in being in a group that includes companies like Framebridge,” Buck told DC Inno in an interview Friday. “I feel very lucky, but it also makes me want to be more engaged with female founders.”
