VaporChat, a New York-based messaging platform, raised $1.5m in seed funding.
The round was led by a consortium of strategic angel investors, including Ed Wise, SVP, Managing Director of Branded Content at Turner Broadcasting.
Led by Ken Fried, founder and CEO, VaporChat allows the user of any text or photo to be in control over anything they send by “Vaporing” content what they have sent at any time, even after delivery. This is in contrast to many other messaging platforms that fail to protect user data.
VaporChat is available for free today on iOS, with an Android build currently in development.
