Maverick, a Los Angeles, CA-based next generation social network for girls, raised $2.7M in seed financing.
The round was led by Matt Robinson of Heroic Ventures with participation from Susan Lyne and Nisha Dua of BBG Ventures and Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn.
The company will use the funds to continue to expand operations.
Founded by digital media entrepreneur Brooke Chaffin and academic and influencer Catherine Connors, who met as executives at Disney, Maverick provides a digital platform for girls and young women to exercise and share their creative powers and connect with the next generation of leaders, innovators, artists, and entrepreneurs.
Maverick is accessed via a free iOS app and the web.
