$5.6 Million in Seed Funding
On October 20, 2014 Singapore-based startup GNum announced it has raised US$5.6 million in seed funding from private equity firm Tembusu Partners. GNum is a free online chat service that allows people to connect using a simple URL. So, unlike with Skype, Tango, Viber, or countless other chat apps, there’s no need to sign up or log in. You just need to give the personalized URL to whoever it is you’d like to have call you. The idea is that it gives more privacy, keeping it separate from your social media life. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s more secure. No app is needed, but there’s a very basic GNum app available for Android and iOS.
