Berlin, 31.05.2023 – MyPostcard is pleased to announce the acquisition of PenPal, a thoughtful social platform, into its ecosystem.
The Berlin company is thrilled to see PenPal, a platform committed to reducing loneliness and fostering genuine human connection, join the MyPostcard family. This transition marks an exciting time for both parties as we see a promising future in our combined efforts.
PenPal has been successful in creating a space for meaningful friendships, approaching 100k users from every country in the world, and facilitating over half a million monthly interactions since its pre-seed funding round last year.
As PenPal integrates with MyPostcard, its co-founder, Felix Wunderlich, is set to embark on his next entrepreneurial journey. MyPostcard would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Felix for his vision and dedication.
“From PenPals beginnings as just a vision to becoming a business that means a lot to so many people, it’s been such an exciting journey. I’m happy to see it grow and evolve as a part of the acquisition by MyPostcard. There’s a clear strategic alignment that offers a promising future.”, says Felix Wunderlich.
