uboot.com started in 2000 as one of Europe’s first online communities. Yesterday the Vienna based company anounced that JaJah founder Daniel Mattes has just invested a sum in the 6-digit range for about 25% of the shares. The fresh capital will be used for the creation of a “revolutionary” social gaming model. The social network aims to establish proof of concept for this new model by the end of this year. Afterwards it is going to do another investment round (with the help of Daniel Mattes) and then internationalize the platform.
Back in 2009, Daniel Mattes had sold its Internet telephony service Jajah for a rumored sum of €145 million to the Spanish telco Telefonica. He also has recently unveiled his new startup for online payments called Jumio.com.
