Tapingo, a San Francisco, CA- and Tel Aviv, Israel-based mobile shopping platform, raised $10.5m in Series B funding.
The round was led by Khosla Ventures with participation from existing investor Carmel Ventures. As a part of the funding, Ben Ling, an investment partner at Khosla Ventures, will join Tapingo’s board.
Led by Daniel Almog, CEO, Tapingo provides busy shoppers in dense retail environments with a platform to discover and browse nearby items from their own mobile devices before placing orders that are quickly fulfilled in real time.
