Piccing Inc.: Piccing.com: new photosharing community comes to Germany

Berlin, 16 December 2013

- Start-up from Palo Alto conquers European market and opens office in

- Stellar growth and membership figures doubled

- Matching tool 'Picc it. Live it!' launched

Piccing.com (www.piccing.com) is an international social photosharing community, headquartered in Palo Alto, California. Members give each other inside tips on locations, fashion trends, lifestyle products, restaurants, clubs etc. The number of users is in seven figures and has more than doubled over the last five months. Now the matching tool 'Picc it. Live it!' is also available: it lets members mark their favourite products in images and get real-time suggestions for similar products. This links images with the real world and monetarises them. In the near future members of Piccing.com will also be able to earn real money by recommending their favourite products - if a sale is made, the member gets a commission.

'Following our successful launch in America three years ago we are now seeing a constant rise in the number of users from Europe. So the logical consequence is that we are now addressing the European market from Berlin, because Berlin is the start-up capital of Germany and I was able to experience the vibrant 'old Berlin' when I visited my grandparents there many years ago', says Dirk Spielmann, founder and CEO of Piccing.com. 'Our developers in Cape Town, South Africa, are in the process of adding new features and translating our platform into different languages. The first will be German, Spanish and French', continues Spielmann.

In addition to its internationalisation, Piccing.com is investing massively in researching and developing new technologies to ensure it stays state-of-the-art. 'The topic of mobile first is right at the top of our agenda. Our new app will have all the familiar functions that our users already know from the browser version', says Nikolaj Zethraeus, founder and CFO of Piccing.com. In its latest round of financing the start-up raised a seven-figure amount from respected private investors and family offices.
