New York – Exfm, the developer of an add-on for Google’s
Chrome browser that provides a music discovery service, has raised $750,000 in
seed funding, TechCrunch reported.
Investors included Spark Capital, Betaworks,
Founder Collective and Dave Morgan.
Founded in 2010, New York-based exfm’s
Chrome extension alerts a user when a Web page being visited contains an
embedded or linked MP3 file, and saves the location in a playlist so that tunes
may be listened to later.
Exfm will use the new funds to hire additional staff,
expand its application beyond Chrome, and launch mobile applications for iOS
