Accelovation, a Mountain View, Calif. maker of online software for researching emerging technology markets, has raised $4 million in a second round of funding.
This is the worst name for a company we’ve heard in a while. It is meant to be a joining of the words “acceleration” and “innovation.
Thomvest Ventures led the round with a $2 million investment, VentureWire (sub required) first reported this morning. Other investors included Altos Ventures and individuals.
Thomvest and Altos invested in a $3 million first round more than two years ago.
The company says it is like a search engine but produces analytics and summaries of the results rather than just a list of documents.
