Cinq Music raises $20 million Series B, Snap Inc. selling Spectacles in Harrods of London, and Snap Inc. hires Swiss team behind anti-reverse engineering software.
Data-driven music label Cinq Music raised a $20 million Series B round from GoDigital Media Group, according to a press release. The company’s software manages distribution, rights management, marketing, and sales analytics tools.
Snap Inc. opened a pop-up shop inside the London department store Harrods, reports TechCrunch. The retail distribution marks the first time you can buy Spectacles in person and not through a vending machine or online.
Snap Inc. has quietly acquired the team behind Swiss startup Strong.Codes, a maker of tools that obscures software code and makes it harder for competitors to copy, reports Bloomberg. Snapchat has said it risks being copied by Facebook’s Instagram.
