Breathometer wants to help reduce the number of drunk drivers there are on the road, thanks to a pocket-sized device that connects to your phone through its headphone jack and can guage your blood alcohol level. To do that, it’s $2 million in new funding and announced a whole new group of executives. The company raised $1 million from investors that include Structure Capital VC and Dillon Hill Capital, in addition to another $1 million that it got from the five “sharks” on that weird ABC show. It’s also appointed a whole big group of new execs, including new CFO Matt Ackerman, VP of Marketing Brian Sturdivant, VP of Sales Matt Sammons, and VP of Software Engineering Dave Bryand.
