British publishing platform woto.com raises $500K to go mainstream

Woto, a London-based startup with a new type of publishing platform, has just raised $800K in a seed round led by Ingenious Ventures (Update – May 2023: The startup seems to be no longer in business under this website, and we therefore deactivated the original link).

Founded in 2013, Woto allows users to set up single-page websites, and since launching its beta platform earlier this year, has already attracted users in 117 countries; these pages have been viewed more than one million times, and shared on social media more than 80,000 times. Ingenious Ventures was obviously impressed by this wave of early adoption and led the seed round to support Woto’s entry into the mainstream.

Woto gives its users the chance to share their content with others, in whatever shape they choose. The startup built its product for social sharers who need more than 140 characters (Twitter) but less than a full website or blog. Woto is enabling everyday consumers to create aesthetically pleasing content in three clicks, without the need for advanced publishing expertise. The platform also provides near real-time social and page view analytics, as well as tools for transferring pages, so you can collaborate with others to generate woto content.
