Gay Social Network Moovz Raises $1.4m Funding

Israel-based gay social network Moovz has raised $1.4m in funding to continue their international growth.

The desktop and mobile service has a Facebook-style Live Feed for users to post and share content, along with location-based searches.

Since their launch last October, they have raised $2.4m in funding and attracted 70,000 worldwide users.

They say Moovz has seen 15m private chats, 9m comments and 500,000 photo uploads.

Their strongest markets are the Philippines, Mexico, US and Brazil, and the company is looking to bring in more investors from the countries where the app has been successful.


Liav Eliash, co-founder and CEO of Moovz said:

“We wanted to build Moovz to provide gay men from around the world with the ability to connect like never before.

“Using customized advanced technologies, this revolutionary platform enables users to share their own content, chat in real-time, and interact with others.

“We believe that providing our Moovz platform for people around the globe who already have things in common will enable them to interact on a higher level and connect as a community.”

Released by Interacting Technology, Moovz bills itself as a “Global Gay Social Network” – connecting users with local and international gay men, or helping them “meet a new travel friend” when abroad.
