Miami’s video chat marketplace, LiveNinja, today announced that they have received an additional $500K in funding. This announcement comes on the heels of their launch of the Katana platform, which we reported last week.
LiveNinja announced the funding news at today’s Startup City Miami event. The funding was provided by local, undisclosed angel investors, bringing the startup’s funding total to over $1M.
With Katana, LiveNinja is focusing on the customer online shopping experience, using video, audio, and text chat to replicate the in-store shopping experience. This focus is aimed at helping the company compete against other companies, like Google, who are offering similar platforms.
