Investec, Crossfin concludes Series-A round with SA chatbot service Atura

Atura, an automated chatbot for asset management companies, has landed an undisclosed Series-A investment from Blue Garnet Ventures, an investment company that counts Investec and local investment fund Crossfin among others as investors. Crossfin has the majority share in Blue Garnet.

The deal was confirmed earlier this week by Atura CEO Paul Cartmel. Atura is a separate company owned by Cape Town software firm New Media Labs (NML), which was founded in 2007.

Cartmel told Ventureburn in an email yesterday that the deal was signed last Friday (7 September).
