Gidsy, a Berlin, Germany-based online service where people can discover, offer and book experiences such as tours and activities around the world, has raised $1.2m in seed funding.
The round was led by Sunstone Capital, with participation from Index Ventures, Werner Vogels, Peter Read and actor Ashton Kutcher.
The company intends to use the capital to accelerate worldwide expansion. Co-founded by CEO Edial Dekker and CPO Floris Dekker, Gidsy is present in New York, Berlin, and Amsterdam and will launch in San Francisco and London over the next two weeks.
