Existing investor Taipei-based CDIB Innovation Accelerator Fund, besides new investors Darwin Venture and Accuvest, also joined the round.

The startup plans to use the funding to expand and accelerate its business to cities, including Hong Kong, Okinawa, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Bali, Osaka, and Tokyo.

This is the second largest investment round in the O2O lifestyle category in Taiwan, behind EZTable’s USD 8.8 million in Series C.

In July last year, FunNow had closed a USD 1.5 million in pre-Series A funding to accelerate growth in its home market Taiwan and two other cities Hong Kong and Okinawa.

Launched in November 2015, FunNow allows people to instantly book entertainment activities. Its search engine and patented algorithm of real-time availability calculation, combined with the geolocation technology, allows customers get a glance of all the available slots within their perimeter almost instantly, claims the company. Through a few clicks, a user can make a reservation for activities such as body massage, bars or fun experiences, or a short getaway to the neighbouring cities without planning.
