Fanpage has raised $3 million in cash and media promotion and announced partnerships this week with Townsquare Media and iHeartMedia.
The Dallas-based startup allows users to create fan pages for music, sports teams, comics, and more via its app. Through the platform, users can compare and compete with friends to see who has the highest “Fandom DNA” as well as connect with other users with similar interests around the world.
Fanpage said its latest funding and partners will help it attract more users to the app.
“They have direct access to the music fans that have shown to love our app.”
“Radio is the No. 1 mass reach medium, reaching more than 93 percent of consumers each week, which makes iHeartMedia and Townsquare the ideal partners for us,” said Fanpage CEO and Co-founder Billy Rodgers in a release. “They have direct access to the music fans that have shown to love our app.”
Townsquare Media, which is based in Greenwich, Connecticut, owns 312 radio stations and more than 325 websites. It also is involved in about 550 live events each year.
San Antonio-based iHeartMedia is a global media and entertainment company that specializes in radio, digital, outdoor, mobile, social, live events, and on-demand entertainment.
The Fanpage app is free to download on iTunes and Google Play stores.
