German firm also announces first round of funding in its history.
Berlin-based company Klash has today announced the release of a major update for its iOS app, along with the first round of funding in its history.
Klash serves as a platform to allow users to challenge their friends and family to take on a task or dare of their own choosing. This can be done simply for fun or for a reward set by the user.
The new update is designed to offer an improved interface and animated GIFs to further enhance the user experience.
“We strongly believe that we are not born for boring and that the world deserves to have more fun. Our application is a perfect tool to solve this problem”, said Alessandro Petrucciani, one of the Klash founders.
Meanwhile, Klash has also revealed that it has finalised talks with two German investors. The lead role in this first funding round, of which the total amount remains undisclosed, goes to Cologne-based mobile investor Venista Ventures, whose COO Kai Schmude, commented: “In Klash we found a passionate and driven team with a great idea. We’re happy to get the chance to support them on their way to success."
Schmude then went on to explain why Venista Ventures became a shareholder: “Klash is a new project full of potential that merits engagement because they are putting a lot of focus on interacting with their users specifically through mobile channels.”
The second investor in the first round of funding is Eierfabrik, also based in Cologne. “We will keep on improving our product but also focus on growing our user base to guarantee the best user experience. This is our ultimate goal,“ explained Alex Napetschnig, who also belongs to the founding team of Klash.
