Leonardo DiCaprio Invests and Takes Advisory Position in NYC
Based Social Media Platform Mobli

 

NEW YORK, October 25, 2011 – Mobli, the popular visual-social media platform, is officially announcing today that actor Leonardo DiCaprio has invested in the company and has taken on an advisory position in helping to shape the future growth and success of the platform. Mobli recently completed a star-studded A funding round of $4 million led by DiCaprio and several other private investors.

Mobli recently unveiled the latest version of its mobile application for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry devices and has seen incredible adoption. This amazing growth recently propelled Mobli to the #1 spot on the App Store list of free Social Networking apps, topping such applications as Facebook, Skype and Twitter. Currently, Mobli is acquiring 10,000 new users a day.

The funding news comes even as Mobli has rejected other large investment offers. "The order in which things are done is a big part of the recipe for success. We believe in our vision, our path and the progress the company has made as a visual platform for social and news oriented communication," said Moshe Hogeg, CEO of Mobli. "Taking a larger round would have required a shift to a different pace. We are excited about this round that brings in strategic investment at the perfect pace for us."

Mobli is available on the iOS, Android and Blackberry platforms and has seen explosive growth and adoption since launch driven by a uniquely active and passionate community of users. People have been drawn to Mobli thanks to a unique interface, high amounts of feedback and interaction, and Mobli's vision of letting users see the world through other people's eyes.
