The latest company to emerge from VentureLab and join ATDC is Pramana, Inc. Conceived at Georgia Tech’s College of Computing, Pramana is developing an easy-to-deploy technology called HumanPresent, that allows users to validate that Internet clicks are generated by human beings rather than bots, software cheats, or other automated systems.
Pramana has a simple but powerful technology premise that anyone associated with the Internet immediately understands. That idea, coupled with a strong founding team that includes Sanjay Sehgal, Guru Rajan, Merrick Furst, and Matt Chanoff, enabled Pramana to raise $850,000 in initial funding led by Imlay Investments.
Due to the nature of the problem Pramana is addressing, the company is maintaining a “stealth mode” profile.
