OurCrowd’s portfolio company Webydo featured on TechCrunch

Leading technology website, TechCrunch, featured OurCrowd portfolio company Webydo. The company provides graphic designers a powerful set of design tools to build and maintain websites with little technical knowledge. Webydo, a software as a service startup that gives web designers the tools to circumvent a more traditional website creation process by excising the need for them to do any manual coding by automatically converting their design into a hosted HTML5 website, has closed a $7 million Series B funding round. The round was led by equity-based crowdfunding VC platform OurCrowd, along with Magna Capital Partners and a group of unnamed strategic investors from the US and UK. The new round brings Webydo’s total funding to $9.7 million. The business was founded back in 2010. Webydo raised $1,292,500 from OurCrowd investors in December 2013. Read more on TechCrunch...

OurCrowd’s Portfolio Company Nextpeer Featured In VentureBeat

Leading technology website, VentureBeat, featured OurCrowd portfolio company Nextpeer, which has developed a platform that allows any iOS developer to easily integrate a first-class multiplayer experience into their games. Lots of mobile games are still solitary experiences. Nextpeer wants to change that by making it simple for developers to add multiplayer play to their mobile games… The company has more than 55 million installations of games that use the SDK. Nextpeer currently supports more than 2,800 games on iOS and 200 games on Android. In these games, players can compete side by side with their friends. The benefit for developers is clear. People play games longer if they are engaged, and multiplayer keeps them engaged as their friends get involved. And engaging games are far more likely to monetize.   Nextpeer raised $325,000 from OurCrowd investors in December 2012, $350,000 in its 2nd round of investment in March 2013 and $660,000 in its 3rd round of investment in January 2014.

TechCrunch: “Nextpeer, Which Brings Multiplayer Mode To Mobile Games, Comes To Android”

Leading technology website, TechCrunch, featured OurCrowd portfolio company Nextpeer as it  launches on Android after racking up about 10 million monthly actives in its network on iOS. The company started off slowly with barely just a handful of titles until a game earlier this year called ‘A Bike Race of Ninja Temple’ took off. Then they started racking up titles quickly, reaching about 2,000 games in the network on iOS alone. That brought them to 15 million unique players and 10 million monthly actives in the network. Now they’re coming to Android with about 100 titles in the waiting, and are planning to support Unity and build an enterprise-level SDK to allow bigger studios to customize their integrations. Nextpeer raised $325,000 from OurCrowd investors in December 2012 and $350,000 in its 2nd round of funding in March 2013. Read more on...

OurCrowd’s Parko featured in Bloomberg Businessweek

Bloomberg Businessweek featured OurCrowd portfolio company Parko this week, putting into context the story of the rise of Israeli traffic and parking apps. Tomer Neuner conceived of the Parko app when he was hunting for a parking space in Tel Aviv, circling his neighborhood on a sweltering summer day. “I thought to myself, there’s got to be a way to make the search more efficient for everyone,” says Neuner, 30, who quit his job as a product manager at financial-technology company SuperDerivatives to develop the app. Parko learns users’ habits by tracking their phones and predicts when they’re about to vacate a spot, alerting other drivers in the area. Neuner launched the app in Israel earlier this year and is planning to expand overseas, including to San Francisco and Paris. Read more on Bloomberg Businessweek here.
