Celly, a Portland, Oregon-based decentralized social networking platform that enables people and organizations to create “emergent social networks” accessible from any mobile device, raised $1.4m in funding.
The round was led by Oregon Angel Fund (OAF) with participation from Upstart Labs, Portland Seed Fund, and individual investors.
Led by CEO Russell Okamoto and CTO Greg Passmore, Celly provides schools, governments, communities, teams, political and other movements around the world with a decentralized social networking platform to start private “cells” that members can join from any device.
Launched last fall, people have created more than 20,000 cells.
The company has just launched the availability of an iPhone application, which can also be used (along with the Android app) outside the U.S., and is expanding its team (read here).
