"Wellington has been a great supporter of Artfinder since its genesis. Their guidance on operating issues as well as strategic thinking has been invaluable."
|The home for art on the web|
Founded in 2010, Artfinder is a social destination and marketplace for art. The company works with museums, galleries and artists to bring their works to a global audience via the web, smart phones and tablet devices such as the iPad. Artfinder users can find and share art from the most comprehensive database of art online, discover new art through the platform’s innovative personalized recommendation system, as well as purchase on-demand prints of favourite works.
The unique concept and dramatic improvement of the way that people discover, share and ultimately purchase art convinced Wellington Partners to lead a first financing round in February 2011, accompanied by U.S. based Greylock Discovery Fund. As the Artfinder team includes experienced and high-level entrepreneurs and engineers from companies like Last.fm, Amazon, IAC, Yahoo, Tango Zebra, Moshi Monsters and The Guardian, the company is in a very good position to become the home for art on the web in a short time.
