HelloTech Finds $2.5M For Tech Support

Los Angeles-based HelloTech said this week that it has raised $2.5M in a seed funding round, to bring remote, technology support to consumers. The startup, led by Richard Wolpert, scored the funding from Upfront Ventures, Accel Partners, Crosscut Ventures, Amplify.LA, Ron Burkle, and others. The startup was incubated from within Amplify.LA. HelloTech is taking an Uber-like approach to its technology support services, tapping into an external network of IT support providers, rather than its own employees.
