GoodOnes Raises $3.5M Seed Funding



GoodOnes app is currently in early access and has just closed a $3.5 million round of seed funding to continue its march toward launch.

In a nutshell, GoodOnes connects to your Google Photos or iCloud Photos account and assists you in selecting the “best” photos from your massive image library. The concept isn’t new; a number of apps have attempted to clean up the mess of images. EyeEm’s The Roll, for example, made a similar attempt, fueling its business model of turning everyone into a stock photographer.

TLV Partners led the round, with participation from Liquid2 Ventures, Rich Miner, and Peter Welinder (founder of Carousel, which was sold to Dropbox), as well as many other seasoned operators and funders. The funds will be used to expand the company’s engineering team.

The app works by learning your preferences and training an AI with your swipe-left-i-love-this and swipe-right-ugh-get-out-of-my-face gestures. From there, it begins to create galleries of photos that it believes you will enjoy the most. The finished gallery or album is created and returned to the user.
