Mural.ly, a Buenos Aires, Argentina-based innovative platform to create murals of content, has just launched with a seed funding round of undisclosed amount.
Backers include Intel Capital, Alta Ventures, 500 Startups, and various angel investors from the Americas.
The company intends to use the funding to enable user attraction and retention efforts.
According to a written statement, a future round, which is currently being sought, will allow larger-scale promotions and expansion. Some of the company’s management team is planning a move to the United States in the coming months in order to grow in that region.
Available for free, the platform allows users to aggregate links and other web content (including images, embedded video, links, and social media content) and displays them in a customizable space that resembles a physical bulletin board or wall. It also serves as a social network for “ideators” who can co-create murals and learn more about each other’s personal interests or business ideas.
The company was co-founded by CEO Mariano Suarez Battan, Pato Jutard, and Agustin Soler.
