$6M for Branchout

9/17/10

In a September 15 regulatory filing, San Francisco-based Branchout says it has raised $6 million in new equity financing from undisclosed investors. The startup, mostly made up of former developers from Tickle (acquired by Monster.com in 2004 for $100 million), makes a Facebook app that helps users with professional networking and job-seeking by showing LinkedIn-like employment histories of their Facebook friends.
