Surkus, a Los Angeles, CA-based provider of a technology platform which connects people to brands and events in their area, raised $10m in Series B funding.
The round was led by EOS Global.
The company intends to use the funds to incorporate blockchain technology into the platform and expand it into Asia with Hong Kong being the first international city available on the app.
Led by CEO Stephen George, Surkus provides an events-based promotion company primarily servicing the nightlife industry, comedy shows, brand activations, charity events, acting classes, extra work, movie screenings and more. Members get rewarded for engaging with different events and campaign, and in turn the platform learns more about their interests and better serves brand clients, who are able to hyper-target members by interests and demographics.
Hong Kong is expected to add hundreds of thousands of new members to the app’s 500,000+ US member base.
