Based in Palo Alto, the start-up imo.in, publisher of an eponymous application, has just finalized a funding round of 13 million dollars (10 million euros). An operation carried out in particular by its co-founder George Harik.

Concretely, the application offers a unique dashboard that allows you to manage a wide range of instant messaging including those of Facebook, Google, Yahoo! or even MSN.

In addition to this investment, the start-up has lifted the veil on a new feature called “Broadcasts” for its Android and iOS applications. The aim is to be able to easily connect users of different messaging services to each other according to their areas of interest.

Imo.in Today boasts 7 million downloaded applications, 750,000 daily unique users and an average of 50 million messages sent each day.
