Sketchfab, a French-founded startup that operates a marketplace for sharing 3D, virtual-reality, and augmented-reality content, has announced that they have picked up another $7 million in funding, this latest round including participation by New York-based FirstMark Capital, as well as current investors TechStars (through their new venture fund), Balderton, Partech, and Borealis. The blog post revealing the news did not provide a great amount of details into the startup’s plans, but co-founder and CEO Alban Denoyel noted that Matt Turck from FirstMark will be joining the Sketchfab board of directors.
We first covered Sketchfab last May, when we noted that the startup had raised $2.5 from Partech, Balderton, Borealis, and a host of private investors.
As a reminder, the startup was founded back in 2012 and was a product of the third class of French accelerator Le Camping and had already gone global, maintaining their primary office in Paris and operating a second office in New York City. The startup currently reports that 300,000 models, uploaded by users, can be accessed through their marketplace.
