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.
