CityVoter Captures $2.6 Million In Series B Funding

CityVoter, a user-generated city guide that competes with services like AOL’s City Guide, and countless others, announced that it closed $2.6 million in Series B funding.

The round was led by Allen & Company and Dace Ventures and Curt Viebranz, former CEO of Tacoda, as well as Bradley Wechsler, co-CEO of IMAX, joined the company’s advisory board.

CityVoter features business profiles, user-created guides, and recommendations on more than 55 cities and recently released a geo-targeting feature to let users find places to eat, drink, and visit beyond the pre-defined metro areas. Most importantly, though, CityVoter has teamed up with Belo, FOX, Gazette Communications, and others to provide its services on their respective sites in an attempt to increase localized user engagement.
