  • (1888PressRelease) December 20, 2012 - 2ndMe, an online photo-to avatar conversion service and apparel Store, raised $100,000 angel investments from a private person. As 2ndMe co-founder Max Gartner says "these funds are both for 2ndMe development and for new services deployment."

    At first, 2ndMe used to provide a simple but precise photo-to-avatar convertor for 2ndMe users. At the same time, a Store with freebies & apparel was released. Later, 2ndMe Team upgraded its conversion tool, and enhanced the layout in the Store. Finally, for even further growth, the Team brought Second Life avatars to Facebook, so Facebook users could enjoy all 3D features of 2ndMe, and added avatar sharing feature.

    2ndMe generated revenue from Fall 2011 and in early 2012 it declared a need in angel investments for a rapid growth. During 2012, 2ndMe Team visited famous start-up pitch competitions like MassChalenge and Startupbootcamp, gathered feedback and discussed the investment issue. In November 2012 it did find the desired investor, who provided funds for further 2ndMe development and launch of new services based on 2ndMe technology.

    As for future plans, Max Gartner declares "we have already shown that our idea is competitive enough in virtual worlds. Now it's time to go real." The details are still being discussed, but it is likely that 2ndMe will develop a new service for e-commerce.
