I just learned that Retrevo, the search engine for consumer electronics product information, closed a Series B venture financing round for $3.2 million dollars. The round was led by Norwest Venture Partners (NVP), and Alloy Ventures, a Series A investor, also participated in the round.
This puts the company in a good position to capitalize on its early success in launching their web site last September. According to Ammar Hanafi, general partner Alloy Ventures, the investment round highlights the confidence that the investors have in the Retrevo team's ability to execute.
Retrevo offers detailed information on consumer electronics products. This information can be used to research, shop for, or repair their products. In addition, the site offers a community for users to share opinions and interact. Retrevo's search results include manufacturer's information, reviews and articles, and user guides.
You can also get access to user manuals quickly and efficiently. Everything can be previewed on the site, as well, including PDF files. The search results are neatly organized in segregated sections making it fast and easy to get to what you want to see. If you are looking for consumer product information Retrevo can provide you with a great tool to get your answers fast.
