  • New generation of social startups seeks mass appeal

    Boston Globe - 08/08/2014

    Is it possible that the next hot social startup was hatched in a dorm room on the campus of Northeastern University?

    Amino has just five employees in a shared storefront office in Downtown Crossing, but already hundreds of thousands of people use its mobile apps, which enable fans of Dr. Who, anime, or the virtual world of Minecraft to share pictures and messages.

    Amino was already generating strong buzz in April, when it graduated from the Techstars Boston entrepreneurial program, and last month, the company said it raised $1.6 million. The main investor was Union Square Ventures of New York, which also backed social media phenomena like Twitter and Tumblr.
