After it secured 1.5 million dollars and another 6 millions in seed investment, American-Slovenian communications platform for apps Layer announced that it raised 14.5 million in Series A funding from Homebrew, AME Cloud Ventures, CrunchFund, Fuel Capital and others.
Layer, the slovenian-american startup that we’ve already written about, has won Techcrunch Disrupt Startup Battlefield in San Francisco, at the same time confirming a seed investment of 1.5 million dollars from a number of funds, including Michael Arrington’s CrunchFund and Bloomberg Beta.

Ambitious would be an understatement, with Layer on a mission to become the voice, messaging and video “layer” (no pun intended) of Internet communications - currently available for iOS and Android products. Exclusively for Netocratic, Tomaž shares the startup’s whole story and vision.
