ChaCha, a Carmel-based mobile search engine, announced Monday morning that it has closed on $7 million in venture funding.

Since its inception in December 2005, ChaCha has raised about $52 million from investors, including tech leaders and venture capitalists.

“We believe this latest round provides ChaCha the cash required to reach profitability,” company founder and CEO Scott A. Jones said in a written statement.

Between its mobile and online services, ChaCha has answered more than 300 million questions in the past two years, the company said.
