Jodel, the Berlin, Germany-based local app to instantly engage with the community around you, closed a $6m funding round.
The round was led by Silicon Valley VC Floodgate with participation from Kima Ventures, existing investors and Adam d’Angelo, ex-CTO of Facebook and founder of knowledge-sharing platform Quora.
The company intends to use the funds to further grow globally.
Led by Jodel Founder and CEO Alessio Borgmeyer, Jodel provides an app that allows users to communicate with others in their vicinity, limited to a perimeter of not more than 10 kilometres. Contributions appear in an anonymous feed and users can engage with and comment on each piece of content.
Currently, more than five million Jodels are shared globally every day.
