The investment will allow the social network to build upon its current offerings and make improvements by updating the platform to provide more functionality and accessibility. Added functions will include the ability to embed images and links within ‘natters’ as well as being able to search for existing contacts already using the service.
The lead investor said: “We have been thoroughly impressed with the team at Natter and what they have achieved so far with very limited resources. With nearly 5,000 users already signed up, the growth is very impressive for such an early stage business.”
He added: “We were also impressed by how passionate the active users are about Natter.com. There is a real sense of community which we think will only get better as the site grows.”
Neil Stanley, CEO of Natter, commented: “We are delighted to receive this investment which is a real pat on the back for our small team who work incredibly hard. These funds will allow us to deliver on our road map for 2015 and get the world nattering!”
Since launching in late 2014, Natter has nearly 5,000 users and is available on desktop and through its dedicated apps on iPhone and Android.
