Pinger Raises $7.5M in Funding from T-Venture

Pinger, a San Jose, CA-based company that provides free texting and talking apps, has raised $7.5m in funding from T-Venture.

The company, which was previously backed by Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers and DAG Ventures, intends to use the new capital to expand on other platforms beyond iOS and around the world, mainly in Europe. In 2011, Pinger started its international initiatives in Germany with the launch of Pinger DE (read here).

In conjunction with the funding, Bernhard Gold, investment director at T-Venture, has joined the company’s board.

Led by CEO and co-founder Greg Woock, Pinger operates free texting and talking apps for the web, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Android.
