The company crunches weather-related data to track major hurricanes, cyclones, typhoons and other storms.
Stormpulse moved to Austin this year and launched the first version of its asset and risk management product.
Matthew Wensing founded the company in 2004 in Chicago so he could track hurricane threats for his family living in South Florida.
The company previously raised a $635,000 seed round of funding from Bill Boebel, Joshua Schachter, Paul Singh, Rony Kahan, Joshua Baer and Laurent Drion.
Wensing was one of a handful of entrepreneurs who got to Demo his product for President Barack Obama during his visit to the Capital Factory.
