The company intends to use the funds for international expansion in 2015, launch in the USA in the next few months and Asia, and improvement of the checkout experience for users within the app.
Co-founded by CMO Daniel Murray and CEO Joel Freeman, Grabble is an online fashion platform that allows users to save products, wherever they’ve found them online, to make a fashion wishlist. The company has built a technology infrastructure based on “scraping” which enables retailers to add products straight off their site, onto Grabble, and turn them into mobile content with no integration involved.
