The funds will be used for product development, to build the AlikeList user base and to expand the company’s executive team.
The platform recently added geospatial and local technologies industry veteran Mark Law as vice president of product development. In addition, this week, AlikeList.com also launched significant user interface and functional enhancements that are designed to improve usability and deliver additional options for connecting users with local businesses.
