Mobli, a NYC-based photo and video sharing app, has raised $22m in Series B funding.
Backers include Kenges Rakishev, who invested $20m, as well as unnamed existing investors.
The company intends to use the capital for development and expansion of its audience base.
Led by Moshe Hogeg, founder and CEO, Mobli enables users to post photos and videos to various subject-based “channels”, receiving a feedback from other individuals. The Mobli app is available free for iPhone, Android and the Web.
Rakishev, who joined Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Serena Williams and Lance Armstrong as an investor in the company, will also have a seat on the company’s board. Late last month, he invested $5 million into TriPlay (read here).
