PhotoSpotLand, a Catania, Italy-based social operative system for travel photographers, raised $27k in micro seed funding.
Backers include unnamed individual investors.
The company is using the funds to expand its branding and marketing efforts, including a roadshow in the USA, the participation at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC.
Led by CEO Mario Bucolo, PhotoSpotLand has developed a platform to aggregate people around photo-shooting spots and share experience and knowledge around locations (such as landscapes, coastlines, mountain ranges, buildings or bridges) and events (religious or cultural events, festivals, or once-in-a-lifetime events such as volcano eruptions or lunar eclipses). The service, currently in beta, is dedicate to enthusiasts, amateurs, semi- professionals, professionals, and blind photographers.
The company, which plans to raise a first round of €100k as soon as possible, is to showcase this week at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC‘s Italian Pavillon along with Amico, AppsBuilder, AudioPlayce, Musement, Risparmio Super, Save the Mom, Styloola, and Vivocha.
