Trufan, Vancouver Tech Startup For Influencers And Brands, Raises $500k In Funding

Published

on

Trufan, a Vancouver-based tech startup, founded by Canadian serial entrepreneur Swish Goswami and Aanikh Kler, a Canada 20 under 20 alum, has raised $500k from multiple celebrity investors.

Trufan is a social media platform for fans to reward their top followers, and also capitalize on data that can be downloaded to micro-target their audience while running campaigns.

The tool will also allow fans to vote, comment and share live sports feed. This comes at a time when when bigger media corporations are scaling back on their sports coverage due to financial pressures.

The company aims to provide private beta access to users on Nov. 15, and eventually cover over 400 influencers and 250 brands by the end of the year.

The list includes influencers such as Kevin Hart, Gucci Mane, Ludacris, Cody Ko, and Cameron Dallas, alongside brands like McDonald’s Canada, Western Union, and UFC. The new capital infusion will help the company expand into newer markets across the United States and Canada, the company said.

“We’re excited to bring partners from various backgrounds on board,” Swish told WealthLAB.

“We have a very humble approach when it comes to the company and the product we are building. That being said, we’re hoping to end 2018 on a strong note and get all our major private beta users onto a payment plan,” he said.

Bob Iger Insight

Happy to share a lil’ insight from an invaluable mentor and friend, Bob Iger. CEO of one of the most trusted and beloved brands the world has ever known. Building a global brand takes time.10, 20, 30 years.. even more. Sure it takes relentless hard work, passion & vision, but the main thing it takes is TRUST. Building that trust with your audience where they know and believe that you’ll always do your best to deliver a fun, memorable EXPERIENCE. And like any successful relationship, it takes years to build up and you always gotta take care of it with your own two hands. #TimeAndTrust 🌎
