Hojbjerg, Denmark-based JumpStory, a marketing and tech platform that provides only high-performing images, announced on Monday that it has raised $1M (approximately €956K) in a fresh round of funding “to conquer the world of stock photos”.
With this round, the company has now raised a total of $3M in funding to date. It has also witnessed a rapid-growth journey, growing 230 per cent in 2021.
Investors in this round
The round saw participation from a number of influential entrepreneurs and business people. The investors include Ruby on Rails creator David Heinemeier Hansson, who is also the co-founder of Basecamp, and Joergen Bardenfleth, former Scandinavian CEO at Microsoft.
Heinemeier Hansson says, “JumpStory is a truly novel take on the world of stock photography. One that sells authentic curation of the hundreds of millions of images available online, rather than competing with the existing giants on their turf. There’s real traction, happy customers, and a bright future here!.”
