AnyPerk, which aims to provide companies and startups with discounts on web services and employee perks, is announcing $1.4 million in new funding from Digital Garage, Ben Lewis (a founder of Tapjoy and Karma), Michael Liou, CyberAgentVenture and Shogo Kawada (founder of DeNA).
AnyPerk is an easy way for any company to provide perks for employees. By signing up for $5 an employee, companies can offer discounts on AMC and Regal movie tickets, money off on cable services like Dish Network, deals on Dell computers, 1800 Flowers and free coupons for Costco.
Companies like Pinterest, Klout, GetAround, BirchBox, Seamless and Pandora are all using AnyPerk to power employee perks.
The company, which also just redesigned its site, originally launched out of Y Combinator last year. AnyPerk’s founders, Taro Fukuyama, Atsu Takahashi, and Sunny Tsang, have a history of starting successful startups. Takahashi co-founded Nobot, a smartphone ad-network company acquired for $19 million by Japanese company KDDI.
