Ilos Videos raises $1.5 million in first round of financing

Ilos Videos, launched three years ago by two University of St. Thomas accounting graduates, has raised $1.5 million in its first formal round of capital raising beyond family, friends and insiders.

The St. Paul-based company, with 10 full-time employees, allows organizations to communicate with customers and employees through software and support that enables customized training and other videos.
