En route to a startup rating gala event in Kiev Ukraine, I have a few minutes to spare in Schipol to pull together this week’s startup news. Good thing that the Reeder app and Evernote both work offline.
Russian venture investors backed Russian online furniture retailer HomeMe.ru, which plans to introduce 3D furniture planner. Homeme parted with 40 percent equity in exchange for $5 million capital injection.
Serbian startup Newscurve, which provides web analytics to bloggers and editors has been acquired by Neodata group, an ad–serving and online publishing solutions company. Earlier this year the acquirer has raised $2.5 million. Now Newscurve office in Belgrade will become Neodata’s Eastern European HQ.
Launches and product releases
Estonian dating site Flirtic has launched in Russia, what looks like a competitive market to join German eDarling, Russian Mamba.ru, LovePlanet, Monamour.ru and Teamo.ru. Flirtic has over 150,000 monthly users.
Estonian GrabCad launched a beta version of its new visual collaboration service enginners and their customers. The engineers can post 3D models of their designs, and the customer can use interactive 3D viewer to see the design and “pin” comments to the relevant area the 3D model.
Croatian Socialnumbers, online analytics for Facebook pages, went global, having launched statistics for North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Oceania.
Russian Pirate Pay backed by Microsoft, has received negative press this week. The critics say that the startup which uses bogus peer accounts to confuse the likes of BitTorrent to prevent sharing of pirated content, may be doing so illegally. Ironically Google automatically changes your search query from Pirate Pay to Pirate Bay.
So yes, a short post today, and hello Kiev.
