Judy's Book Under New Management, Back From the Dead

Seattle-based user-generated review site Judy’s Book is back from the dead.

You read that correctly – while other startups are biting the dust, previously-deadpooled Judy’s Book is back online and under new ownership. The site was originally launched in July 2005 and was shut down in 2007 after burning through $10.5 million in capital.

New investors David Niu, Geoff Entress, Andy Liu have acquired the assets of the company and are behind the new launch. Coincidentally, all three investors work with the original Judy’s book founders, Andy Sack and Chris DeVore, at Founders Coop.
