Pintest Raising $120 Million to Fund International Expansion

Image sharing platform Pinterest is attempting to raise $120 Million to fund an international expansion. With what is their third investment, Pinterest’s valuation has shot up to around $1 – 1.5 Billion.

Reports claim that Japanese commerce giant Raukten is fronting the investment with a pledge of around $50 Million. An investment of this nature would almost certainly see an expansion in the Asian territories where Rautken is so prominent.

Still in Beta, Pinterest has enjoyed enormous popularity in the UK and USA but has made little progress elsewhere. As the site calls for new translators international expansion is the aim of this new investment.
