MADISON, Wis. – March 6, 2019 – Sonic Foundry, Inc. (OTC Pink Sheets: SOFO), the trusted leader for video creation and management solutions, today announced it has completed a $5 million round of funding.
Sonic Foundry’s Special Committee of Disinterested and Independent Directors approved and authorized execution of a note purchase agreement with its Board Chairman, Mark Burish, providing $5 million of funding.
