Tapastreet Raises €500K in Funding

Tapastreet Limited, a Dublin, Ireland-based photo and video discovery platform for mobile devices, raised €500k in funding.

Backers included Kernel Capital, which made a €250k investment through the Bank of Ireland Seed and Early Stage Equity Fund, and Enterprise Ireland.

The company intends to use the funds to increase adoption of its solution.

Founded in 2012 by ex-Intel engineer Joe Mitchell (CEO) and ex-Googler Dave Johnson, Tapastreet is a photo and video discovery platform that enables users to see and share what is currently happening at any location worldwide by accessing real-time media uploaded to popular social networks.

The company, which unveiled its applications at TechCrunch Disrupt 2013 in San Francisco earlier this month, has also developed a joint research project with Trinity College Dublin and The Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon (INSA) under the EU’s Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways, Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), to develop advanced image synthesis techniques and location-based artificial intelligence machine learning algorithms and integrate them into Tapastreet’s core product offering.

The app is available for free on Android, iPhone and iPad.
