Truecaller Rings in Successful Funding

It starts with an idea that scratches a universal itch, and transforms into a movement to bring on the change in how we find each other through technology. With our latest funding announcement of $18.8M, and our partnership deal with Yelp, we invited Sweden’s political figures and industry leaders into our headquarters to celebrate our steps of success, and help to strengthen the Stockholm Startup scene.

It starts with an idea that scratches a universal itch, and transforms into a movement to bring on the change in how we find each other through technology. With our latest funding announcement of $18.8M, and our partnership deal with Yelp, we invited Sweden’s political figures and industry leaders into our headquarters to celebrate our steps of success, and help to strengthen the Stockholm Startup scene.

Today we welcomed into our office Dr. Ewa Björling, the Swedish Minister of Trade, Her Excellency Mrs. Banashri Bose Harrison, the Ambassador of the Republic of India to Sweden and Latvia, and Mrs. Brzezinski from the US embassy together with Jon Weadon, the U.S. Embassy economics officer.

“Usually my calendar is booked for six months or so, but this could be the Swedish Apple or Google in Stockholm, so I better come!” says Dr. Ewa Björling, Minister of Trade. “So, you know where I’m trying to reach; to the stars.”

Her Excellency, Mrs. Harrison, added that Indian companies will benefit from the investments in Sweden, and she hopes that Indian companies will grow in Sweden thanks to this step with Truecaller.

With every ceremony that celebrates the opening of a new chapter in a company, Truecaller had a ‘ribbon-cutting’ ceremony….except we skipped the ribbon all together and went with a giant Gong.

“This is to symbolize that we want to spread the word of the Swedish startup success and to celebrate the benefit of Truecaller,” says Kim Fai Kok, marketing manager of Truecaller.

And we hope, with the help of our users, we will do just that.
