Livelens raises $2 million to allow fans to watch live streams

Livelens, a platform that allows anyone to easily stream video live to their existing followers and friends and schedule upcoming live events, today announced the launch of their mobile application. The Livelens social media platform provides the easiest and most powerful way to stream content directly from a smartphone or tablet to any connected device and additional personal social media pages simultaneously. The company also raised $2M to help encourage users to monetize their video content easily with the application.

Livelens believes that some fans will dish out money to watch live streams of their favorite artists and celebrities. The Tel Aviv-based company launched today its iOS app and a redesigned Android app for streaming of live or scheduled video to your social media pages and directly to any connected device. The company has also raised $2 million in new funding from undisclosed investors. Livelens aims to enable two things for its customers: Live streaming of planned or spontaneous events and monetizing those live streams. “We’re excited to introduce this new platform of video sharing to the social media world, filling a void that was clearly missing in the social platform market. As the industry continues to evolve, transforming on what seems like a daily basis, we can now welcome live video into the mix,” said Livelens chief executive Max Bluvband in an official statement.
