Colorado Tech Quote of the Week

“Being able to understand the received quality of a return when it comes back and being able to tie in a lot of other data that we capture in this process enables us to shine a light on a lot of things that logistics operators and brands didn’t have a good way to capture before. We can use data to become a lot more intelligent about returns.” — Kyle Bertin, co-founder and CEO of Two Boxes

Two Boxes secured $4.5M. The startup, which helps brands and logistics companies collect data about customer returns, emerged from stealth last week with $4.5 million in fresh capital. The seed round was led by Vinyl Capital and will go toward hiring software engineers and customer success and sales talent. [Built In Colorado]
