Started in 2015 by lifelong video gamers Jason Citron and Stan Vishnevskiy, Discord is the product of their passion for connecting with groups and developing online friendships while sharing games or other interests.

Discord just received $500 million in additional funding in the latest round of financing led by Dragoneer Investment Group and with participation from Franklin Templeton Investments and Fidelity Investments according to Bloomberg.

The app which was initially purposed by video gamers has expanded to include clubs from art communities and study groups to virtual comedy and karaoke events.

Discord now has 150 active users and is valued at $15 billion by Bloomberg after the latest round of financing.
