Lassy Project raises $750K for missing child app

LONGMONT – Lassy Project Inc., a recent Techstars Boulder graduate, has raised $750,000 in equity investment, according to a recent regulatory filing.

Lassy Project officials couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday.

Co-founded by former University of Colorado football player John Guydon, Lassy Project has created an app that notifies the local community within seconds of when a parent realizes a child has gone missing.

With the free app, parents can create profiles of their children with photos. The company also offers premium services, such as providing parents with notifications for things such as their children deviating too far from their normal path to school.

Lassy Project’s recent filing notes that the infusion of cash came from six investors.

When the company made its pitch at the Techstars accelerator’s demo day on Oct. 9, Techstars co-founder Brad Feld announced that his company, the Foundry Group, planned to invest.
