Celery raises $2 million in seed funding
Celery is a store builder service for online and mobile shopping. The startup has raised $2 million in a seed round of funding from Y Combinator, SV Angel, Max Levchin, and several other investors. Celery plans to use funding for building their team and extending their platform features for becoming an embeddable and mobile-centric storefront for merchants.
“With pre-orders, we accelerate the revenue of the companies in the booming crowdfunded economy,” stated Celery CEO Chris Tsai. “Now we’re going to build the next-generation storefront for all merchants, and that means giving them something well-designed and mobile-first.”
Some of Celery’s customers include Pebble, Rigidbot, Neptune Pine, 3Doodler, Airtame, and Omate Truesmart.
