Audingo, a social media platform provider for celebrities, has landed $3 million in angel funding.
The Austin-based startup connects celebrities with fans by phone, text, email or video.
“With angel investors’ latest commitment of capital, Audingo is making the platform available to personalities and organizations nationwide so they can more intimately engage with their supporters via social media,” according to the company.
“Audingo is about belonging to the inner circle of select personalities and organizations,” Matt Merritt, Audingo co-founder and president, said in news release. “Audingo’s vision is for subscribers to connect with their chosen personalities and organizations on a deeper level than other social media platforms allow – like having a few close friends, versus many acquaintances.”
Audingo CEO Michael Boukadakis founded the company in November of 2010.
