Today is a special day. I’m very happy to announce that our company, Praized Media Inc., has received $1M in seed funding from Garage Ventures Technology Canada. Yes, Praized Media is much more than an industry blog and today, we lift some of the veil (just a bit) covering our stealth initiative. After spending the last year talking about local and social in public, we’ve now taken the plunge and are becoming full-time Internet entrepreneurs.
There’s not much we can tell today. I’ll let Harry’s quote in our press release do the talking: “Praized is a social media company developing software that connects blogs, social networks, and local search in ways never seen before, says CEO Harry Wakefield.” The company is currently operating in stealth mode and expects to launch its product in key target markets early next year. This investment is going to allow us to really grow this business”.
If you want to be part of the beta test, sign up for an invite on our home page.
And if you have what it takes to be our Lead Engineer (Ruby on Rails and much more), we want you on the team!
Finally, don’t worry if you’re an avid reader of the Praized blog, I will still be covering and offering my take on Local 2.0 in the future. It’s not going away!
BTW, if you want to follow the evolution of our company, we’ve created a “Fans of Praized Media” Facebook group that you can join.
