SAVVY: Savvy , a one-on-one live video platform for teachers and students, closed a $1.7 million seed funding round on September 25th. Partech Ventures, LearnCapital, Fresco Capital, Metatron Worldwide and angel investors led the round. The San-Francisco-based company announced the launch of its Private Beta on the same day.
