Eyeka, which connects brands and creative consumers, has raised €3 million ($4 million) in a second round of financing. The company already had €5 million in backing in 2006 with Ventech, DN Capital and SFR Developpement, while the company was focused on a platform to enhance pictures and videos management from mobiles. For this new round, previous investors are joined by French VC I-Source. This new round is to accelerate their international development and develop new product. Essentially speaking it’s a platform for crowd-sourcing ad campaigns for ad agencies and brands.
