TECH CRUNCH - Sep 18 - Perceptual Networks has raised $1M in funding from an impressive group of VCs and angels. The startup appears to be focused on social discovery and mobile. It was co-founded by HotOrNot and I/O Ventures founder Jim Young, is developing a suite of products to make it easy for people to find the people they best connect with, whether they are looking for the right co-workers or employees, the right relationship, the right friends and activity partners or the right community to live in. Young founded HotorNot in 2000 and sold the site for $20M in 2008.
Mark Brooks: HotorNot is a hallmark idating brand, and (was) one of the most efficient dating sites ever built. Badoo acquired HotorNot in April from Avid Life Media who acquired HotorNot from founders Jim and James in Feb 2008.
