Connected2.me, which was one of startups selected at Etohum 2012 batch, just announced that it has received 515.000 USD fund from several investors.
The winning of the 1st Award of Startup Challenge at Startup Istanbul was a great success for Connected2.me and didn’t only secure investment from Dave McClure and 500 Startups, but also led to the relocation of the company’s headquarter to the Silicon Valley. Despite of the relocation, it is still very popular startup amongst the Turkish investors and this allegation has just been proven after the founders of Connected2.me, Ozan Yerli and Göksü Orhun, announced that their funding rally for 515.000 USD, which started in the beginning of December, successfully reached its goal in less than a month.
Connected2.me was funded with the impressive amount of 515.000 USD in just a couple of weeks by very crowded list of mostly Turkish investors: Nevzat Aydın, E.Bora Uygun, Sinan Güler, Selçuk Saraç, Joachim Behrendt, Lari Pardorokes, Mehmet Onarcan, Münif İhsan Koz, M.Fırat Kalsın, N. Kemal Yılmaz, Selahattin Önen, Sergül Yücekök, Sertaç Yakın, Wiebe Logghe, Ömer Erkmen, Turhan Beriker.
