Korea’s VCNC raises funds from 500 Startups and Global Brain



Korea-based VCNC, the startup that operates the couples app Between, announced today it has raised series C funding from 500 Startups and Japanese VC firm Global Brain. Details were not disclosed but the funding looks to be worth several millions of dollars according to TechCrunch Japan.

Prior to this funding, the company also raised funds from Japanese internet company DeNA back in February, following rapid user growth fueled by a new version of their app.

The company recently hired a local employee in Taiwan in an effort to reach out to more users in South East Asian regions. Using these new funds, the company will intensify marketing in Japan with an eye to expanding to the US market as well.
