Edmonton, Alberta – March 22, 2023
Sprout Fund has completed its eighth investment from Sprout Fund II into high growth, Vancouver-based, restaurant tech startup, Dyne, as part of a $1.5m seed round.
Dyne (www.dyneapp.ca) provides a restaurant-specific customer data platform that enables restaurants to harness customer data to automate marketing, optimize pricing and offers, and increase profitability through machine learning.
“Sophisticated analytical and decision support solutions have been available in retail and e-commerce for over a decade allowing those businesses to harness customer insight to provide high quality tailored experiences. In the restaurant space, only the largest brands with the biggest budgets have been able to do this. Dyne brings these capabilities to any restaurant chain and the market response has been very positive since launch just over a year ago,” said Shaheel Hooda, Partner at Sprout Fund.
Restaurants have ramped up their operations, post-COVID, to deal with the resurgence of in-person dining. Patrons are returning to socializing around their dining experiences. This renewed market demand combined with significant labour shortages is driving industry need to automate traditional marketing and operational activities. “We provide these tools while helping restaurants design, and deliver, tailored experiences that keep patrons coming back,” said Arnav Mishra, Founder and CEO. “Our team is excited to leverage the support of the Sprout team as we grow our business and position ourselves to become the leader in the restaurant decision-support space,” he added.
Proceeds of this round will be used to drive commercial expansion and build strategic partnerships.
