The IRL App, which stands for In Real Life, is a leading social calendar and event discovery platform designed to unite folks over common interests. The brand recently announced a $16M Series B Round led by Goodwater Capital to expand its platform to colleges and beyond the United States.
“IRL is the only social platform that helps users find the best ways to spend their time and actually encourages them to get off the platform,” said Abraham Shafi, Founder and CEO of IRL. “Colleges and universities, in particular, need a way to build and foster a sense of community, whether their students are away from campus remote learning or on campus practicing hybrid learning. We’ve already seen a great response from students using IRL to manage events on campus. This new funding will allow us to expand IRL’s platform, help students create lasting memories and friendships through shared experiences, and look towards international markets.”
