which is of an undisclosed amount amounting to 0.6 million Euros ($0.8 million), came from prominent angel investors and entrepreneurs, most of them European: Mörten Lund, Steve and Jean-Emile Rosenblum, Oliver Jung, Lukäsz Gadowski, Loïc Le Meur, and Aydin Senkut.
The site, which has a nice, map-based interface, is currently lacking content. It appears to index only 164 hotels, nearly all of them in France. However, Trivop claims it has a worldwide network of more than 900 filmmakers. The company promises to add user-generated uploads “in the next few weeks.”
