Mangoplate, Korea’s Answer To Yelp, Lands $6.1M And Eyes Expansions Across Asia


Mangoplate, a service akin to Yelp in Korea, is in the money today after closing a $6.1 million Series A round to expand in its domestic market and branch out into other parts of Asia.

The round was led by Qualcomm Ventures and included participation from SoftBank Ventures Korea and YJ Capital. The latter is the venture capital firm from Yahoo Japan, which made its first investment in Korea with this deal and recently became an LP in Southeast Asia-based Monk’s Hill Venture’s fund.

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
