Vurb, a San Francisco, CA-based smart platform to organize and connect all the services together on the web, raised $8M in Series A funding.
The round was led by Redpoint Ventures, with participation from Stanford University and some seed investors. In conjunction with the funding, Geoff Yang, founding partner at Redpoint, will be joining Vurb’s Board of Directors.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its team in SF and expand operations.
Founded by Bobby Lo, Vurb offers a search, browsing, and sharing experience (currently in beta) for services and apps around places, movies, and media.
Last year, the company had raised over $2M from Max Levchin, Drew Houston, Naval Ravikant, and funds including Atlas Venture, Caffeinated Capital, Crunchfund, Data Collective, and Susa Ventures.
