Voice, a Greenville, SC-based location-based social media app, raised $280k in seed funding.
The backers remained undisclosed.
The decentralized social network app, available on iOS and Android, allows users to connect to everyone in their area rather than sending a friend request. Everywhere a user travels they are presented with a new network of users in that specific area, this creating location based micro-networks with localized content.
These micro-networks make the app useful for people attending conferences or events, going to festivals or seeing live performances, or just traveling and visiting new places.
Created by Ryan DeMattia, Voice has users in 16 countries on 4 continents.
