Keek, which bills itself as “the fastest way to share video”, has raised $18m in its latest funding round, which it will use to keep pace with growth.
TechCrunch reports that Keek added 6 million users over the last 30 days, with 200,000 new sign-ups per day thanks to a quick and easy method of sharing video that eschews filters and editing.
“We, from the beginning, have looked at video as a form of communication,” CEO Isaac Raichyk told TechCrunch. “It’s a way for people to communicate with their friends, with the followers, with their fans, or whoever, but it’s a way to communicate. We don’t provide any beautification filters, no video editing, just point; shoot; upload; communicate.”
The funding was led by AGF Investments, Pinetree Capital and Plazacorp Ventures, along with Cranson Capital.
