Kimkim: Kimkim raises $3.7 Million for agent bookings

Kimkim raised a total of $3.7 million in a series of seed investments. The Palo Alto-based company had disclosed a $1 million seed investment in 2016. The other $2.7 million has been raised since then, with the biggest piece — $2 million — coming from Lightspeed Venture Partners. Launched in December 2015 as HiveTravel, the service quizzes a consumer on what kind of trip they may like, introduces the user to a local travel advisor to finalize the details, and then facilitates the transaction. CEO and co-founder Joost Schreve has past experience in the industry. He previously founded and sold EveryTrail, a location-aware tech company, to TripAdvisor in 2011 and eventually rose to become vice president of mobile product at the online travel company.
