TECH CRUNCH - Aug 25 - The 6 month old app is now reporting nearly 100,000 users across the U.S., who have racked up some 750,000 matches within the app thus far, up from 450,000 mutual matches back in March. The Friendsy team has now pulled in a seed funding round coming from Lerer Hippeau Ventures and Slow Ventures. The new financing expands the $200,000+ they had already raised from the same investors, as well as from Princeton University. The seed financing will be used to prep for a big back to school push this fall. Friendsy has built up a network of 100 campus representatives at this stage, to help spread the word about the app.
