The total funding has now reached € 1.4 million.
Location-based search and discovery service Tellmewhere has raised a further € 550,000 of funding. This brings the total raised by the Paris startup to €1.4m. The new round was led by Stephane Romanyszyn, founder and CEO of entreparticuliers.com, the leading French real estate website.
The new funding will be used to support Tellmewhere’s international expansion, with version 2.0 of the service reaching the UK and USA in the coming weeks.
Tellmewhere offers a mix of local reviews, mobile social networking and location-based discovery. Users can search for places and businesses nearby, rate, write and read reviews, and send alerts to friends in their social network letting them know that they are nearby. It competes with the likes of Qype and the various localised versions of Yelp, along with Gowalla and Foursquare but without the gaming element.
