Breaking App, Loupe Nets $3 Million In Funding

A few months after its initial launch, sports card breaking app, Loupe has reportedly secured $3 million in funding to help the company develop its own streaming platform. 

The investment is led by Upfront Ventures and Nat Turner, who is also part of a group aiming to purchase PSA.

Loupe provides users the option to break or buy boxes and cards. Rather than searching for box breaks in Facebook groups, eBay or an unverified website, Loupe aims to be a one-stop shop.

The Loupe App was founded by longtime collector, Eric Doty. 

“Our mission is simple: We want to bring modern technology to the card collecting hobby.” Doty said. “The initial reaction to Loupe has been so tremendous that we’re confident this segment has been itching for its own dedicated streaming platform.”

You can download the Loupe app on the Apple App Store as well as the company’s site.
