Event Discovery App Fever Raises $3 Million, As It Enters U.S. Market

05/08/2014| 2:47:45 PM| 中文

Fattened with $3 million in fresh capital, Spanish event discovery app Fever sets sights on ultra-trendy New York event goers.

Fever’s first funding round, Led by Flickr chief and former Google exec Bernardo Hernández González, simultaneously kicks off the self-titled iOS and Android app’s expansion beyond Madrid. Though New York is practically bursting with competitors — YPlan, Sosh, WillCall, etc. — Fever believes it can win over its first U.S. city on two factors: the use of social recommendation algorithms, in tandem with the skillful curation of off-the-radar (dare I say hipster?) events.

In a call with VentureBeat, Fever founder Pep Gomez threw chief competitor YPlan a backhanded compliment:

YPlan is great. I really love the product. I think it’s a product for last-minute deals, and it’s more mainstream. It’s like Groupon. In our case, we think social is king.
