Mi Alma, an Atlanta-based startup, that provides support to individuals and families dealing with grief and loss, has secured $1.5M in pre-seed funding. The round included prominent backers such as Michael Gossling, Founder of DoMyOwn.com, and his wife June, David Rudolph, Founder of PlayOn! Sports, and his wife Kristine, Brooke MacLean, Founder of Marketwake, Michael Staenberg, a real estate developer and philanthropist, and Eric Spett, founder of Terminus.
The company plans to use the funds to expand its operations and increase its business reach. Founded by Scott and Jordan Arogeti, Mi Alma is an online support service that focuses on how communities can support families who have lost a loved one. The platform enables families to provide clear guidance on the kind of support they require, such as direct funds, meal trains, or help with groceries, and volunteers for day-to-day activities. Additionally, Mi Alma allows the community to post pictures, stories, memories, or prepared remarks, with all content available.
