Mingle Takes On Professional Networking

In the second, location-based networking app to launch in the area in as many weeks, Los Angeles-based Mingle said today that it has launched a new, iPhone app which aims to help people meet other local professionals. Mingle said its app helps users find other professionals who might be sitting at the next table or standing in the same line as you. The company--founded in August--said it has created an iPhone app which helps professionals introduction themselves to others nearby, providing information from your Facebook or Linkedin account to provide a context for introductions. The app is free. The company was co-founded by Andy Kim, William Chu, and Charlie Ahn.
