Blogging platform Small Teaser has raised €800,000 in its first round of funding to invest in R&D and marketing with a view to launching in the US.
The investment comes from LRM, The Co-Foundry, and a number of business angels: Frank Bekkers, Koen Desmedt, and Bart Claeys.
The Belgian startup was founded by twins Stijn and Ruth Janssens. It has developed a blogging platform to help bloggers and writers monetise their work through ad revenue. The new funding will be used to enter new markets with the biggest potential in the US, said Ruth. The startup has spent the last couple of months optimising the platform to prepare for scaling, she added.
