Kibo Ventures, Bonsai and Sputnik are investing in the start-up, whose French version has been named Monnuage.fr.
The social network for travellers, Minube, has just announced a €1 million round of funding from two new shareholders, Kibo Ventures and Bonsai Venture Capital, as well as from a long-standing shareholder, Sputnik. Founded six years ago, the Spanish start-up, which aims to “revolutionise social travel”, intends to consolidate its international expansion, particularly in Latin America. The site is currently available in English, French (Monnuage.fr), Italian, Portuguese and German, and its applications are used in 100 countries around the world.
The fundraising will also be used to improve the site and the applications on mobile and tablet devices. Minube claims nearly one million registered users, and over 1.3 million shared photos. Its app has generated over two million downloads.
