Companies which sign up for AnyPerk can draw on the startup’s deep partner list to provide discounts, special rates, and other benefits to their employees
AnyPerk, the startup making it easier for companies to shower their employees with fun extras, just grabbed US$8.5 million in series A funding, according to TechCrunch. The company last raised money in June 2014, to the tune of a US$4.5 million seed round.
AnyPerk shows that anyone can make it
DCM Ventures and Digital Garage funded this round, joining Andreessen Horowitz and SV Angel as backers of the company. AnyPerk first garnered attention a few years ago for being the first Japanese team to make it into YCombinator.
When we caught up with CEO Taro Fukuyama last year, he told us that the company was operating with 25 employees. Now, it has grown to 45 staff and reportedly grew 200 percent since last June.
