Serial entrepreneur Farhad Mohit is at it again. Back in 1996, Mohit founded BizRate, one of the first consumer review sites, and then shopping search engine Shopzilla. He sold both to E.W. Scripps for $570 million in June 2005.
Now he has a new super stealthy startup called DotSpots. The startup raised a seed round of $300,000 last September from Mohit and HitForge, the angel fund run by engineers. (HitForge is also an investor in WeGame and Mesmo.tv). In his LinkedIn profile, Mohit hints that DotSpots:
will make my other ideas to date look like child’s play…
Not much else is known about DotSpots other than that it wants to apply crowd wisdom to every piece of information out there, beyond shopping and product info. We’ll be keeping an eye on this one.
