Gen Z social network Superfy raises $2.2M

London-based Gen Z social networking platform Superfy has raised $2.2M in its latest funding round, bringing its total funding to $6.7m. 

Founded by Michal Tamir and Gil Schoenberg, Superfy’s tagline is “Ask Anything!” and it functions as a chat-based social network where users post questions or topics and chat to like-minded people one-on-one or in groups.

The app has more than 500k registered users who allocate 40 mins per day to it on average. More than 20m messages are currently sent through the app per month, and the user base is largely 18–21-year-olds across US, UK and Canada.

The launch of the new Groups function has significantly improved the app’s overall performance, with the average time each user spends on the app per day jumping by a third to 40 minutes and the amount of total monthly messages sent doubling to 20m.

"Superfy is not just a social network; it's a community-driven platform designed to empower Gen Z,” said Michal Tamir, Founder and CEO of Superfy. "With Super Groups, we're breaking down barriers and facilitating meaningful conversations between people, creating an environment where every voice is heard and valued."

"We believe in the power of connection and community," Tamir continued. "Superfy is not just about likes and follows; it's about forging genuine connections and fostering a sense of belonging. With Super Groups, we're taking social networking to the next level."

Participants in the funding round include a range of prominent angel investors from the consumer tech industry including Alon Matas, founder of BetterHelp, Nir Greenberg, founder of Natural Intelligence and the founders of Ilyon, which was acquired by Tencent-owned Miniclip.
