Quora, a Mountain View, CA-based question-and-answer website, raised an $85m Series D funding round.
The round was co-led by Collaborative Fund and Y Combinator’s Continuity Fund, with participation from previous investors Tiger Global, Matrix Partners, and Dustin Moskovitz.
The company, which is now valued at approx. $1.8 billion, intends to use the funds to expand internationally and develop its ads business.
Founded in 2009 by CEO Adam D’Angelo and & Charlie Cheever, Quora is a Q&A platform that enables people to share and grow the world’s knowledge across millions of common interests from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences.
