AMSTERDAM,  25  March  2015 –  Dashmote,  an  Amsterdam ­based  tech  startup  that  integrates specialized  services  and  bundles  that  information  for  its  users,  announced  today  the  company valuation and beta launch of its image search feature. Four months after its start, the company raised €450.000  of  pre-­seed  financing,  with  a  post­-money  valuation  of  €4.5  million  allowing  Dashmote  to launch its first feature and start development on its mobile application.

Dashmote is on a mission to bring inspiration and simplicity into everyday routines. By transforming the way people use the web, Dashmote unlocks creativity and cultivates curiosity.  The search feature allows you, the user, to be inspired and connected. With the image search feature, users can search for a theme, compare all images on one webpage and share selected photos instantly.  There is no need to browse different image sources any longer.


Key features of the image search include:

  • Direct access to multiple image sources

  • Browse sources simultaneously  

  • Capture photos and create unique mood boards based on selections

  • Interconnected with social channels


Dashmote’s  current  partners  include  major  parties  such  as  Getty,  Fotolia,  iStock,  Pixabay  and Dreamstime. In the coming months, Dashmote expects to add niche services and tap into new social media  image  sources  such  as  Instagram,  Pinterest,  Tumblr  and  Flickr,  who  recently  joined  as  a partner.

With the addition of three employees in March, Dashmote now has a creative and experienced team of  11  working  in house  and  four  supplemental  freelance  developers  located  around  the  globe.

Currently in its validation stage, the company is able to realize long term plans and features.


“The  Dashmote  team  is  passionate  and  ambitious.  The  creativity  and risks  being  taken  to create  a  product  that  inspires  its  users  have  allowed  the  company  to  expand  beyond  its valuation.” – Dennis z.s. Tan, CEO, Dashmote
