inploid became popular when it received investment from Dragons Den Turkey and got listed in Wired 100 list; and now it receives investment and mentorship support from Galata İş Melekleri (Galata Business Angels).
inploid, the knowledge and experience sharing website included new features in April, and we have learned that it received 300.000 lira worth investment from Galata Business Angels for 30 percent.
This makes inploid’s valuation reach 1 million lira, while founders Serkan and Hakan Köse’s shares became 17.5 for each, and 35 in total. And first investor Nevzat Aydın holds 12.5 percent share now.
We have learned that this investment will open the door for major changes and that GBA, including some major Turkish entrepreneurs, will make efforts to help inploid go international.
You might remember that this year in May, Galata Business Angels Secretary General Ayşe İnal told at Webrazzi Startup’12 that Galata Business Angels had invested in 6 start-ups and this year would be nine in June. We are not sure if inploid investment is among the planned ones, but it is good to know GBA goes for new investments.
In short, inploid is a question and answer platform and its content is developed by users. The users can ask and get answers about their interests and be informed. You can listen to Serkan and Hakan Köse at Webrazzi Ofis and have more information about inploid.
