9GAG Raises $2.8M, Releases iOS App
9GAG rolled out a mobile app today that makes sharing its “wildly popular irreverent and hilariously funny content” easier than ever.
Humor Website 9GAG this morning announced that it has raised $2.8 million in seed funding from Freestyle Capital, True Ventures, returning investor 500 Startups, First Round Capital, Greycroft Partners and individual angel investors like Scott Banister, Chris Sacca (Lowercase Capital) and David Tisch (TechStars).
In addition, 9GAG is releasing a new mobile app for its amusing content; you can grab the iOS app here.
The company behind the funny site says the fresh capital will be used to step up staffing, expand internationally and cater to its growing community.
