Pose Finds $1.6M

Santa Monica-based Pose, a developer of mobile, social shopping applications, said last week that it has raised $1.6M in a funding round. Pose is headed by Dustin Rosen, formerly an associate at Los Angeles-based venture capital firm The Mail Room Fund. The funding came from GRP Partners, True Ventures, and Founder Collective, along with angel investors Dave Morin and Shawn Fanning. GRP's Mark Suster and True's Jon Callaghan join the firm's board as part of the funding. Pose develops an iPhone application which allows users to take pictures of fashion and products they like, and share it with their friends. More information »
