Kidworth Becomes Bizinate, Gets Funding, Expands To Older Users

Los Angeles-based Kidworth, the online service which makes it easy for kids to offer their services and start a business, said today that it has renamed itself Bizinate. The firm said the name change came as it found that entrepreneurs of all ages--including college students and adults--were strongly interested in its services. The company, led by Rudy DeFelice, said the name change more accurately reflects its growing user base. As part of the announcement, the company also said it has raised $1.0M in a first round of funding; other details on the funding were not announced. More information »
