Strikingly, the do-it-yourself (DIY) website creation service, has raised a $1.5 million seed round. The investments came from prominent venture capitalists including SV Angel, Index Ventures, Funders Club, Infinity Venture Partners, and Innovation Works. Company founder David Chen tells us that the money will be used to help grow his team.
For this Y Combinator alumnus, Strikingly aims to allow anyone to set up a website really quickly, in a manner similar to Wix. However, Chen says that the difference between his company and other similar services is that Strikingly is taking a mobile-first approach.
