Today, the Dutch startup behind the service is announcing that it has secured $1.6 million in fresh funding from global VC firm New Enterprise Associates (NEA), with participation from prior backer Atomico.
Three additional investors also chipped in: former Google head of corporate development EMEA Anil Hansjee, Spoke Software CEO Philippe Cases and Jens Christensen, a private investor best known for his role as CEO of Ellerdale (acquired by Flipboard).
Silk says it will use the fresh cash to further expand its team and scale up infrastructure and development efforts.
Says Salar al Khafaji, co-founder and CEO of Silk:
“We are working hard to make it easy to create and search structured information. We are thrilled that NEA has chosen to partner with us in this endeavor and that Atomico has followed up on their investment from last year.”
