Wigo Closes $1.5M Seed Funding

WiGo LogoWigo, a Boston, MA-based app for college students to figure out who is going out and where, closed a $1.5m extension of its seed round.

The round, which followed an initial seed round of $550k raised over the summer 2014, was led by Great Oaks Venture Capital with participation from Greylock Partners, GGV Capital, Blade, KEC Ventures, as well as angel investors including Jean Pigozzi and Brian Guttman.

Led by Ben Kaplan, founder and CEO, Wigo allows college students to figure out who’s going out and where. Its student-only filter blocks all townies, adults, and other randos.
The app has been downloaded at over 1,400 college campuses across the U.S. to date.

The company intends to use the funds to add new features and expand nationwide adoption.
