Everdays, a Detroit, MI-based social platform that builds communities around milestone life events, closed its $12m Series A funding round.
The round, which was led by Houston-based Gordy Companies, brought its valuation to nearly $100m.
The company plans to use the funds to at least double its team of 30 over the next 12 months, hiring in all areas including marketing and product development.
Led by founder and CEO Mark Alhermizi, Everdays provides a social platform for building communities around milestone life events. It provides free memorial announcements and keeps users up-to-date about deaths in their life’s network, enabling them to share memories, events and condolences when loved ones need it most. The platform uses artificial intelligence to connect users based on details about their hometown, high school, military service and funeral homes in their community to deliver automatic announcements.
The app is available on both iOS and Android.
