Boldomatic, a Zurich, Switzerland-based content-creation platform and community, closed $700k in seed funding.
Backers included European angels and investors.
The funds will support Boldomatic’s growth and expansion into the U.S. market as well as the development of its social commerce capabilities, enabling users to print their thoughts on apparel and accessories.
Founded in 2012 by Steffen Schietinger, CEO, Boldomatic provides a text-only social network connecting a global community of creative writers (over 100,000 content creators producing 500,000 statements throughout 170 countries). Its free app for iOS, Android and web browser allows users to express their thoughts in bold, colorful texts that can be shared within and outside the Boldomatic network to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and Instagram.
The company’s on-demand shop allows people to print bold statements on custom products, apparel and accessories.
