GoodOnes, a San Francisco, California-based company that develops a personal photo assistant powered by machine learning, raised $3.5 million in seed funding.
The round was led by TLV Partners, with participation from Liquid2 Ventures (Joe Montana’s fund), as well as Rich Miner (former co-founder of Android), and Peter Welinder (founder of Carousel, sold to Dropbox), as well as other operators and funders.
With the funding, the company is planning to expand its engineering team.
“Like so many parents, having children turned my phone into a blackhole of thousands of photos," said Israel Shalom, CEO of GoodOnes. "Capturing your children’s special and everyday moments should be a positive experience – but it can quickly become overwhelming and impossible to navigate. As a product and engineering leader from Google and Dropbox, I was surprised a solution hadn’t yet been developed. The industry to date has been focused on cloud storage, yet we knew there was a better way. We focused on building a fun and easy-to-use platform to help people go from cluttered camera roll to photo-zen.”
