June 7, 2013 Leave a comment
Wallstreet’s version of Linkedin, Relationship Science has raised an additional $30 million in new equity funding, according to regulatory filing.
It has not yet been reported who the investor is. The company previously raised about $60 million from big names on Wallstreet like Ken Langone, CV Starr, Henry Kravis, Hearst Corp., MacAndres & Forbes, RIT Capital, Stanley Druckenmiller, Barry Sternlicht, Andrew Tisch, Harvey Golub and Joe Perella.
While we have written about it before, the basic idea of Relationship Science is that it is like an elite version of LinkedIn. Unlike LinkedIn, it finds information online in order to connect help connect influential people in business, finance, and nonprofit organizations, but does not need any user-inputted information.
The creator, Neil Goldman stated that, “I always thought there had to be an easier way to identify and connect with the people and organizations I needed to reach to achieve my goals, so I decided to create RelSci to fill that need.”
