An Akron tech startup called 7signal attracted $2 million in investments last year, and has raised another $1.1 million so far this year. The latest infusion of money: $250,000 from the nonprofit economic development group JumpStart Inc.
JumpStart, which invests in startups in the region, said Wednesday that it has agreed to invest that amount in 7signal, which specializes in wireless technology for the health-care industry and higher education.

Goodrich complex on South Main Street downtown.
