This funding round, carried out with renowned business angels such as Jean-David Blanc (Allociné), will allow the start-up to develop a local social network for iOS.

The start-up Hello Hello today announced the launch of its free local matchmaking app for iPhone.

For the development of this application, which should soon be available on Android, BonjourBonjour raised funds in the amount of 650,000 euros. Funding from several web investors including Patrick Liotard, owner of the social network ASmallWorld, Jean David Blanc, founder of Allociné, Fred & Farid, Frédéric Jousset, co-founder of Webhelp, and Lukasz Gadowski, Polish investor and entrepreneur who participated in a hundred startups around the world.

Based in Paris, the start-up was founded in 2011 by Rasmus Michau, serial entrepreneur in events and marketing. Following the trend of local services which abound on the web and on mobile, BonjourBonjour is a local social network, allowing to publish statuses and photos, and to keep abreast of events.

The application will use geolocation to allow its users to easily find people or activities nearby through a keyword search.
