Wuu is a beautiful and private messaging platform created by serial entrepreneur Paul Budnitz, with help from about 2000 friends. Wuu is a safe & beautiful place to share a moment with best friends – without Likes, followers, ads, competition or lots of little tiny buttons. The company believes that (1) Sharing Love is better than getting Likes (2) Your social life is not a popularity contest (3) Privacy & safety create intimacy, and (4) Every moment is beautiful.
The Seed round was led by Founders Fund, with participation from FreshTracks Capital.

Budnitz sees Wuu creating a space beyond those global town squares. A space where you don’t trade like for like or obsessively track your follower count. A space free of #influencers because everything is private.
