BoardProspects, a Braintree, Mass.-based online professional community dedicated to building better boards, has raised $650k in seed funding.
Backers include Mike Verrochi, managing partner at Blue Rock Ventures, and other angel investors.
The company intends to use the capital to accelerate development of its platform, which will formally launch in the second quarter of 2012.
Led by Founder and CEO Mark Rogers, BoardProspects connects individuals and organizations (non-profits, private, and public companies) — prospects and boards — seeking to fill board and advisory-level positions while providing educational resources and tools to improve boardroom service. The first 1,000 people to pre-register for the service at www.BoardProspects.com before it is live will receive a free lifetime premium membership.
