Endomondo reaches 5m downloads and raises $2.3m


The Danish startup and creator of the famous sports app Endomondo reported today that it has surpassed five million downloads of its app. The young company also announced that it has raised $2.3 million in funding from SEED Capital – after raising $800,000 of funding from the same venture firm in March. Endomondo will apply the funding towards increasing staff needs, especially on the development team, and adding an office in San Francisco. With these steps Endomondo aims to keep itself in a position to serve its growing user base.

With Endomondo you can keep track of your sports activities and follow or even challenge your friends live while they are working out. The Copenhagen based startup was founded at the end of 2007 by Jakob Jønck, Mette Lykke and Christian Birk.
