As club/group members begin capturing and sharing photos, a real-time feed gets instantaneously created, syncing the experiences from everyone’s camera
Vebbler, a social camera app that lets users share photos easy among groups, has secured US$500,000 in funding from a syndicate of 16 investors in India, Singapore, Hong Kong and the US, through online deal-making platform LetsVenture.
The lead investors include Anupam Mittal, Founder and CEO of People Group; Sharad Sharma, Co-founder of iSpirt; Venkat Raju, CEO of Kyron Accelerator; and Pranav Pai and Siddarth Pai, Founding Partners of 3one4 Capital.
While people love taking photos together, the process of later sending them to each other is extremely cumbersome, and Vebbler promises to make that happen in one single tap.
Vebbler is a camera-first app designed to make sharing of photos easy between groups at night-outs, vacations and celebrations. It is not a photo management app that organises your photos based on location or facial recognition.
With Vebbler, you can Instantly share photos with one or multiple clubs directly from the camera. It is suitable for one-time events like road trips and music concerts, or recurring moments like those your college friends and family.
Once downloaded, you can create a club with your gang, shoot photos and let Vebbler handle the rest. As club/group members begin capturing and sharing photos, a real-time feed gets instantaneously created, syncing the experiences from everyone’s camera. Vebbler stitches together the photos from different phones into one single timeline.
“As an account of personal experience, during college, frequent night-outs and spontaneous trips were very common, and we’d take hundreds of photos from our phones, only to undergo the mechanical and pain-staking process of sending our moments with each other afterward. As a result, we’d be left with an incomplete picture of the story most of the times. It is then that I realised that there had to be a better way for people to stitch together photos and videos of everyday moments of their lives,” said Sahil Bhagat, CEO and Founder of Vebbler.
Sharad Sharma, Co-founder iSprit, said, “I think photos and videos are an increasingly powerful medium for communication that surpasses the limitations of language and geography, especially in a country like India. Vebbler has built a great platform to connect groups and provide them a powerful tool to share and express themselves in new ways and that is very exciting to me.”
