Fullscope Inc. today (Nov 21) announced that it has received $10 million in financing led by venture capitalists Massey Burch Capital Corp. and River Cities Capital Funds, enabling the business solutions provider to leverage its aggressive 2001 growth efforts focusing on vertical marketing strategies, new product introductions and business organization.
