Qloo, a New York-based cultural discovery engine, raised $3m in seed funding.
Backers included Tommy Thompson (Cross Creek Pictures) and Samih Toukan and Hussam Khoury (founders of Maktoob).
Founded by Alex Elias and Jay Alger in April 2012, Qloo is a platform that allows members to discover new things and places based on their existing taste in any area. It serves personalized suggestions for music, film, TV, dining, nightlife, fashion, books and travel.
The company, which had raised $1.4m in March 2013 (read here), also launched its free app today.
