Using the funding, it has received, it has expanded it’s business a lot. In 2019 according to some reports, there were over 100,000 monthly active users.
Since then the company has made a lot of progress despite the COVID-19 pandemic. It aims to use the Series B funding to expand globally and work on its products.

The investors of the company also think that there is a much larger market that Mural can capture. This has led to the vast Series B funding that they received.
Mural’s take on COVID-19 situation fading slowly
Mural has a very different insight/view on the situation of the pandemic. According to Mariano Suarez-Battan, a user/client who has conducted an event online much more efficiently and frequently will not go back to the traditional offline ways even if the COVID situation passes.
