We made Keyhole to solve our biggest social media pain-point: Tracking Twitter and Instagram conversations is too difficult, in terms of both data collection and presentation.
Turns out, a lot of other people felt the same.
Now, we’re focused on continuously improving how Keyhole tracks keywords and hashtags. We also make account reporting tools to help businesses analyze brand and competitor social profiles.
Extreme Venture Partners funds us.
