The Hunt, the community-driven online site that makes photographs shoppable, and counts celebrities Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher as investors, has secured $5.5 million in Series A financing from seed investor Javelin Venture Partners. The site allows consumers to share photos of what they are seeking to buy, with a like-minded community that includes some brands who “hunt” down the product or offer similar items.
Alex Gurevich, partner at the venture capital firm, said, “The team has executed very well and has built out an experience at The Hunt that has significant traction in their ability to gain new members as well as keep them engaged.”
