Dutch content monetisation startup Cleeng secures $512K to expand to the US

Amsterdam-based Cleeng, an innovative e-commerce platform for digital content, has just announced a $511,600 funding round led by former Apple VP Pascal Cagni. The fresh capital will be used to fuel Cleeng’s expansion into the US.

The Dutch startup, which launched in 2011, offers a platform that protects access to any type of digital content available on computers, smartphones, tablets and other devices. In this way, Cleeng enables publishers to place partial “paywalls” on specific pieces of content or to create special membership-areas. Cleeng safeguards live concerts, sporting events, conferences, other videos, and traditional online publications and offers great flexibility with the use of pay-per-view, subscriptions, metered paywall, coupons, and user data questionnaires. Cleeng is currently headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and has satellite offices in France, Poland, and Texas.

Pascal Cagni, a well known former Apple VP, stated in relation to his investment: “The opportunity to offer a simple, straightforward, robust solution to monetise content, being TV programmes, videos, or live events is simply huge and this is exactly what Cleeng is doing, very well… Their success so far is remarkable and knowing the Cleeng team inside and out, I believe they are uniquely positioned to further harness this transfer value and to fully benefit from this opportunity.”
