French company meltyNetwork has raised a new round of funding (Update – December 2022: The startup seems to be no longer in business and we therefore deactivated the link).
meltyNetwork is a network of websites (Melty, MeltyFashion, MeltyStyle, MeltyBuzz) for young French-speaking people. Each digital media and news website has a different focus, but maintains a common branding thread.
This week the company announced having raised some new capital from its existing investors, including Ionis Education Group and Bouygues Telecom Initiative, the founders of meltyNetwork, and Pierre Chappaz (the founder of Kelkoo and Wikio). Alexandre Malsch, the CEO of meltyNetwork, said that this new round of financing will lead to further growth and enable the network to offer evermore quality content to its young visitors.
