March has already produced some madness in the VC space ($5 billion+ capital invested according to PitchBook's database), with well-known names—Snapchat, Lyft, Pinterest—snatching a lot of the capital. But a number of lesser-known startups with new and unique technologies have scored funding of their own. Here are some of the cool technologies receiving VC funding recently:
Bugcrowd: Crowdsourcing isn't just for raising money anymore. This company has integrated the concept into its cybersecurity testing platform, enabling enterprises to subject their software to the largest network of security testers on the planet. Bugcrowd scored a $6 million Series A and is backed by Partech Ventures, Blackbird Ventures and others.
Clear Flight Solutions: The creator of a remotely controlled robotic bird designed to simulate an eagle or peregrine falcon and scare away flocks of birds near airports, construction sites and other areas. The company recently raised €1.6 million from The Cottonwood Euro Technology Fund.
Sqore: Its platform provides a forum for universities and organizations to host online challenge-based skill testing to help showcase and find up-and-coming coding talent. Northzone Ventures backed the company in its $3.5 million raise.
Feetz: Providing a few photos through the Feetz app can get a user a new pair of custom fit, tailor-made shoes that are created using 3D printing. A member of Launch Tennessee's 2014 accelerator program, Feetz recently raised a $1.25 million seed round led by Khosla Ventures.
