What's the latest startup to launch of out Santa Monica-based business "studio" Science Inc.
, run by former MySpace CEO Mike Jones? That would be appear to be Gumhouse
, which just raised $6M in a funding round, from such venture firms as Polaris Ventures, Science Inc. and others. Gumhouse reported its funding via a regulatory filing, but has not yet detailed what the firm is up to otherwise. Gumhouse lists its Brian Lee (ShoeDazzle, LegalZoom), Mike Jones (Science Inc.), Peter Pham (also of Science Inc.), Tom Dare (MySpace), Greg Gilman (RxVantage), and Jason Trevisan (also of Polaris) as board members. In the meantime, Gumhouse appears to be helping to promote the entire stable of Science INc. sites, by Tweeting deals to WittleBee, Uncovet, Dollar Shave Club, and a number of other Science Inc. properties.
