VizEat, a Paris, France-based food experience platform, raised €3.8m in funding.
Backers included current investor Eurovestech plc., among others.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its growth, which will include new offices opening in the UK and Germany, strengthen its management team (it has appointed former Head of Mobile Acquisition Marketing of Meetic-Match Group Europe, Pierrine Griffiths) and continue to boost its community of outstanding travel and food experiences with locals around the world.
Founded in July 2014, VizEat by Camille Rumani and Jean-Michel Petit, VizEat provides a social dining platform which connects travellers and local hosts offering food experiences (dinners, cooking classes, food tours, etc) at their home.
The platform, available in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish, currently has more than 20,000 hosts across 110 countries.
A mobile app is available for download for iOS and in October will be available on Android.
