Unlike any other platform, French Girls provides a unique way for users to communicate with one another through artistic expression. The end result tends to surprise and sometimes exhilarate regardless if the content is exceptional, comedic, or creative.

"Passing a million is exciting, but we're just getting started. There is such an uniqueness to the content on French Girls and how the community is evolving is what makes the future bright. People can express themselves visually on French Girls in ways that are easily understood yet extremely powerful and we feel that we've only touched the surface of what's possible through this new type of communication." said Adam Ceresko, CEO of French Girls.

The startup also recently closed $500K in seed funding from singer/actress Christina Milian, NFL linebacker Larry English and serial entrepreneur Kristopher B. Jones.

"Once Larry showed me the app, I knew I had to get involved. The concept is so simple and provides an amazing experience. Everytime I post a selfie I have no idea what I'm going to get back, which is such a rush" - Christina Milian.

Christina was formerly the social media correspondent for The Voice on NBC and is currently filming her own reality TV airing on E! network later this fall which will showcase her career as a singer, actor and entrepreneur.

Currently the team is focused on adding profiles and commenting on individual drawings to increase the social aspect of the community and the relevance of the content.

French Girls App was incubated out of APPEK Mobile Apps, a mobile app development company that has incubated several other notable mobile apps, such as pathmapp.com, a 2012 TechCrunch Start-up Battlefield Finalist, and FaceInvaders, a 2011 Gizmodo App of the Day and Week.
