Last week, Wise PR began working with Spindle, a new social/location discovery app that transcends search beyond the keyword and into the real world. Spindle works by harvesting the social graph and leverages signals such as location and time of day - new technology that knows what's happening around you - and delivers great content from local businesses and organizations, sorted by themes like restaurants, shopping, and nightlife.
Here's a video that explains Spindle.
Spindle made a recent announcement that it closed on $2.3M in investments from Polaris Ventures, Greylock Partners, Lerer Ventures, SV Angel, Atlas Ventures, Broad Beach Ventures, Project 11, Ray Ozzie and Raman Narayanan.
Here are some great PR wins for the announcement: TechCrunch, VentureBeat, Reuters, Betakit, Pando, TUAW, Boston Business Journal, Boston Herald, Fortune, Digital Media Wire, Social Times, Dow Jones VentureWire.
