Smilebox Inc., a Redmond, Wash.-based global photo service company, has received $2m in follow-on funding to its Series B round in December 2007.
The funding will be used to drive the company’s expansion into the European market.
Building on its strong distribution growth and established business model in North America, Smilebox will offer a fully localized version of its service for top European markets starting in the second quarter of 2010.
Yannis Dosios, former vice president of marketing at the company’s headquarters, will lead its international expansion efforts from offices in Athens, Greece as vice president of European operations.
