Jingit raises $7m for paid engagement


JingitA once stealth Minneapolis startup that came out swinging for the fences last year at Finovate NYC, has raised $7m of equity and debt financing, according to a recent SEC disclosure.

Dubbed ‘The First Real Cash, Real-Time Engagement Model Ever,’ Jingit is a web/mobile platform that pays consumers nominal amounts of money for watching ads, checking in, shopping for certain products and doing brand surveys. The company has previously raised an estimated $3m and maintains a partnership with US Bank on a pre-paid debit card deal.

Former Chief Merchant at Walmart, John Fleming, became an advisor this July and known local angel Tony Abena is an investor. The company is currently hiring full time for positions like Node.JS developer and QA Analyst; neither co CEO Joe Rogness or co CEO Todd Rooke were available for comment just yet.
