    ◎創作者訂閱平台Patreon已經籌集了額外的6000萬美元,將用於提升會員資格到一個全新的水平。Patreon在該平台上擁有超過300萬名活躍贊助人和10萬名創作者,迄今為止已支付超過10億美元。

    ◎這一新的D輪融資由後期投資者Glade Brook Capital領導,參與者包括先前的投資者Thrive Capital、Initialized、Index Ventures、DFJ、Freestyle Capital、Charles River Ventures等。加入投資的還有第一批創作者/藝人,包括Serj Tankian和Hannibal Buress。

    ◎該公司自2013年成立以來至今已籌集到1.65億美元的資金。

    詳細內文:

    Creator subscription platform Patreon has raised an additional $60 million that it says will be used "to take creator memberships to a whole new level." Patreon has more than 3 million active patrons and 100,000 creators on the platform, and has paid out more than $1 billion to date.

    This new Series D round was led by late-stage investors Glade Brook Capital, with participation from prior investors Thrive Capital, Initialized, Index Ventures, DFJ, Freestyle Capital, Charles River Ventures, and Otherwise. Also joining the funding round are the first creator/artist investors including Serj Tankian and Hannibal Buress.

    The company has now raised a total of $165 million since its founding in 2013. "Patreon fulfills a unique need for creators," according to co-founder Jack Conte, "leveraging the deep, personal connections they've fostered with their fans to get them paid for the value of their work. "

    The new funds will be used to fuel international growth and more customization.

    "supportive troll-free communities"

    "Creators across the globe are using Patreon to nurture direct connections with their fans, build supportive troll-free communities, and deliver unique value to patrons," Conte continued. "We'll support this international growth with new currencies, payment methods, and languages. Additionally, we have started our global expansion with an office in Porto, Portugal and are in the process of exploring other locations so we can best serve creators."
