German social network Friendticker, which allows users to check in, share activities and recommend venues in a city, has just landed a seven-figure investment (Update – December 2022: The startup seems to be no longer in business and we therefore deactivated the link).
Founded in 2010, the startup uses a check-in concept, where users share their favourite locations like restaurants and venues. The company wants to now further establish its concept, which offers users real value in exchange for their check-ins, with rewards at selected locations.
What does this startup plan to do with its new funding? The fresh capital is going to enable the young company to grow more quickly in Germany and all over the over the world. The investors in this particular round for the Berlin-based online platform were DuMont Venture, NRW.BANK and Klaus Wake.
