Invi Secures $750K In Seed, Launches Rich Media Messaging Application

Congratulations to INVI team and co-founders Iddo Tal and Lior Gonnen.  Invi launched this week on the Google Play.  invi has developed next generation media texting allowing users to share pictures, add YouTube videos and much more to their text conversations, making their content more attractive and interactive.

invi also announced that it raised $750,000 in seed funding from prominent international investors including Horizons Ventures (Li Ka-shing), Atlantic Bridge and leading Silicon Valley angels from Google, Nokia, Yahoo, Groupon, Spotify, SRI, and others. 

Iddo and Lior took part at UpWest Labs first session and quickly realized the opportunity and need in creating an alternative to the traditional texting applications.  They interviewed and spoke to hundreds of teens in Palo Alto who are heavy texters and who provided valuable feedback on the product features and potential.


“invi has been developed for today’s fast-paced generation who prefer to communicate via texting and want to be able to express themselves through more than words. It’s time for apps to be integrated into texting so we can watch YouTube videos, listen to music, post to Facebook and much more, all while we text.” – Co-founder, Iddo Tal

“We wanted to take the well-known texting experience and transform it into a slick, visual and engaging one, while keeping it super-fast and simple as texting should be. invi seamlessly integrates with Android, making sharing into and out of it easy and beautiful without interrupting the flow of the conversation.” – Co-founder, Lior Gonnen

Invi is hiring iOS developers and working hard to add additional features to the existing app.  Go get your INVI.
