After Y Combinator, Whispli raises a $2.8m seed round from US and AU investors
We’re excited to share that we raised our $2.8M seed round from top US and Australian investors. eBay founder Pierre Omidyar's UP2398 fund, alongside Australian VC firms (AirTree Ventures and Blackbird), with US (Pioneer Fund and Liquid Fund), and a few angels among which Louis Beryl (YC partner formerly at Andreessen Horowitz) – they all decided to back our vision to make it safe and easy for anyone to speak up.
First and foremost, a massive thanks to our A-team that worked around the clock and without which we wouldn’t be here. The intensity of our collaboration peaked during our experience in San Francisco, when we participated to the Y Combinator Summer batch 2018.
