Reach, a cross platform mobile application which gives users access to files across mobile devices, has raised $500,000 (around Rs 3.3 crore) led by Japanese VC firm Rebright Partners.
The round was also participated by Sol Primero, Sudhir Anandarao (entrepreneur in residence at Bessemer Venture Partners), Ankur Warikoo (CEO of Nearbuy), Ankur Singla (CEO of Helpchat), and a few other angel investors including Durgesh Kaushik, Pritesh Gupta and Anunay Gupta.
Reach was founded in 2015 by Akshay Pruthi, Abhay Pruthi, Ashish Kumar and Ayush Verma. The app lets users discover music, apps and free games from their friends’ network. Users can send friend a request and get permission to access their friends’ mobile collection to listen to their music for free, install the apps they use and play the free games.
Ashish Kumar, co-founder of Reach said,
“Reach has been developed to create a social graph between friends via sharing and discovery of content being consumed by their peers every day,”
The app claims to have over 50,000 users with more than 16 million files on its network and over 2 million file events.
The startup plans to introduce links as another file type wherein saved links can be accessed by others from their phones. It also plans to add provisions to share images, pictures and videos using the app in the future, with the user controlling what is visible to others and what is not.
