Amihod Brothers' customer service solution attracts funding from Year One Labs

Posted by Liam Britten

Year One Labs has made their fourth investment, this time in Montreal brothers Dov and Mitch Amihod.

What’s the name of the company? Well… they haven’t decided yet. What will it do? Well… that hasn’t been revealed either.

Mitch, on the other hand, seems to the go-to tech wiz of the two. Just look at his website here; the variety of projects is staggering. It’s certainly within the grasp of two guys like these to make something big that’ll shake up the customer service industry.
