Montreal’s Ooomf Becomes Crew and Raises $2.1 Million

Montreal’s Crew announced today it has raised a $2.1 million round led by Fred Destin of Atlas Venture.

Crew, formerly known as Ooomf, is an on-demand network connecting short-term mobile and web projects with handpicked developers and designers.

A FounderFuel grad, Ooomf was originally an app discovery startup and the name change was also part of today’s announcement.

Crew vets each mobile and web project submitted and connects them with the right designer or developer in less than a day. Over $3 million in short-term projects have been approved and matched in the last year.

Before starting Crew, the founding team were independent developers and designers themselves, which is why their shift to this type of business makes a lot of sense.

Also participating in the round were Naval Ravikant, founder of AngelList; Real Ventures; iNovia Capital; and Boldstart Venture Capital.
