RunMyErrand Is fbFund Finalist
RunMyErrand, a Boston-based “service networking” startup profiled here in February, is among an initial group of 25 finalists announced by Facebook yesterday for the company’s annual fbFund competition. The fbFund program is designed to provide seed funding for Web startups whose applications or services connect to the Facebook platform. As a finalist, RunMyErrand will receive $1,000 as well as a chance at securing an investment of up to $100,000 and an invitation to work directly with Facebook developers in the company’s Palo Alto, CA, headquarters. “We are over-the-moon excited,” said RunMyErrand founder Leah Busque in a press release. Facebook says a second group of 25 finalists will be announced soon.
