IYK, which unlocks the fusion of digital and physical, announced a raise of $16.8 million led by a16z Crypto.
- Partnerships: Collaborations with adidas, 9dcc, and VÉRITÉ.
- Mission: Repairing the broken link between digital and physical spheres for brands.
- Funding Boost: A $16.8M fundraise steered by a16z Crypto.
- Game Plan: Redefine brand interaction in a modern era.
In an era where the lines between digital and physical are increasingly blurring, IYK works with companies to provide seamless experiences and connections between the two. Its overall objective? Mending the fragmented connection between digital presence and physical engagements for brands.
Over the last two years the company has associated itself with market leaders, including adidas and 9dcc. Moving forward, it will continue its push to onboarding more creators and collaborators, namely through the launch of its IYK Platform.
The IYK Platform will have ready made NFC chips, modules to help create experiences with no coding necessary, and an API to help collaborators build a customized digital world.
🧐 Wait, What?
IYK's collaborations help sync physical products to digital experiences. For example, users can scan a chip on a physical product and be prompted to engage with a brand or creator digitally as well.
