Naboomboo, a Turin, Italy-based language social network, raised a seed funding of undisclosed amount.
Club Digitale made the investment in the company, which is now working on developing the mobile platform and B2B services for language schools.
Accelerated within I3P, Naboomboo operates a social network that connects learners with language teachers based on similar interests. The freemium platform features a video call system and works via a “minute portfolio”, which can be spent by teachers to learn another language.
The service currently has 30.000 registered users from 80 countries speaking 65 languages.
Led by CEO Daniele Pozzo, Antonio De Marco, Matteo Padovano, Riccardo Rebora and Carlo Lanzavecchia, Naboomboo was previously backed by Club Italia Investimenti 2.
