Korean video ad creation startup Shakr lands funding for Japan expansion


Shakr, a Seoul-based startup that helps small businesses make professional-caliber video advertisements on a budget, has secured funding from Silicon Valley-based, Japanese-led venture capital fund SV Frontier.

The amount is undisclosed, but Nikkei Computer reports that it’s in the hundred thousand US dollar range. Shakr co-founder and CEO David Lee wouldn’t elaborate, but we’ve reached out to SV Frontier for clarification and will update this post if they reply.

I am interested in applying design thinking to the business. I love to code in Central Park on weekends and build something people love to use. You can reach me at sehwan@techforkorea.com
