WriteSome is raising an undisclosed amount of pre-funding to expand the app to the mass market
Gurugram (Haryana) [India]December 1 (ANI/NewsVoir): WriteSome today announced that it has secured an undisclosed amount via its pre-seed funding round. WriteSome is a mobile app for discovering and sharing original stories and poetry. The app has users in more than 35 countries with the highest number of users from the US, India and Indonesia. The startup, with its team in India, Indonesia and Singapore, will use the funds to expand the team and for marketing. It not only allows users to read and write stories and poetry, but also helps amateur writers get published. The funding will enable WriteSome to expand its team and market reach and provide its team with outstanding performance.
Arpit Sihra, Founder and CEO of WriteSome says we are writers and engineers working for writers and readers. Our team believes that people have always wanted to share their stories but have not been able to do so freely due to industrial, monetary and technological barriers. This investment will help us break each of these barriers and create a world where anyone can share their stories with the world whenever they want.
Founded in late 2021, WriteSome has solved two major problems for amateur writers: First, “amateur writing” has mostly been boring. You write something, share it on social media, a few people like it, some people comment on it and that’s it. There is nothing more to the process. WriteSome’s gamification of the process makes reading and writing fun and brings the global writing community together in a fun way. Second, it really hasn’t been an easy way for amateur writers to get published. WriteSome helps amateur writers take their first step towards getting published.
Kur, the company’s Indonesia-based CTO says, “The most interesting thing about WriteSome is the gamification. WriteSome’s awards, Writer Coins (™), medals and trophies make reading and writing a fun experience. Readers can give awards to writers as a token of appreciation which can later be redeemed for goodies.The app itself also gives medals and trophies to both readers and writers when they use the app and achieve certain milestones.Writer Coins is a new concept we have brought in to enable our users to bring real appreciation for talented writers.”
WriteSome has a fan base all over the world. With the majority of users in the US, the app is slowly becoming the preferred place to write and share for the global writing community. “We have taken continuous feedback from our users. And one of the most interesting insights we got was the love and care the community members have for each other. Authors usually write to share their thoughts and when others read and appreciate their work. , feel they feel happy. We’ve received emails from users thanking us for making this app, and they felt that they really felt safe and valued compared to being on other writing apps,” says Arpit Sihra, Founder and CEO.
“It was exciting to hear how WriteSome worked to make writing fun and the way they bring writers, readers and publishers together. WriteSome solves some problems in a fun way and gives great opportunities to writers. But what really impressed me was the fact that They haven’t spent a dime on advertising so far and still managed to get a global user base that really loves the app.” says the investor, who wishes to remain anonymous.
WriteSome already collaborates with some of the biggest publishers in the country and also one of the biggest literature festivals in the world. These collaborations will help the start-up to create more value and provide great opportunities for amateur authors. With this round of funding and these strategic partnerships, WriteSome is poised to change the way stories and poetry are shared around the world.
WriteSome’s mission is to make writing fun with gamification and to help talented amateur writers get their first professional opportunity. WriteSome’s vision is to become the most preferred app for writers and readers in the world by 2027. The company was founded by Arpit Sihra, a passionate writer who understands the pain points of writers and the publishing industry.
WriteSome aims to change the way people share their stories with the world. In the short term, it will encourage people to write and share their stories with the world, and in the long term, it plans to create an entire ecosystem and bring stories to life in the form of books, short films, audio books, animation and through the Metaverse.
