HER Raises $1M in Funding

herHER (formerly known as Dattch), a London, UK-based app for lesbian and bisexual women, recently raised $1m in funding.

Backers included Alexis Ohanian, founder & Chair of Reddit, Michael Birch, founder of Bebo, Andy McLoughlin, founder of Huddle, and 500 Startups.

The company is using the funds to expand across America and launching internationally.

Led by Robyn Exton, CEO, HER focuses on lesbian, bi, queer, curious, flexisexual, pansexual and not­so­straight women connection via a social experience which allows them to meet each other through queer events taking place in their area and through sharing content from the lezzy web.
The profiles are centered around interests with Pinterest-­style layouts. It means that if users match, they get introduced with what they have in common. The app uses gender verification to keep out not really interested people (according to a note, straight men looking for threesomes).

HER is available to download on the Apple app store & will be available on the Android store soon.
