Last week we broke the news that LikeALittle, an addictive college-focused site that lets students flirt with each other, had raised $1 million from Andreessen Horowitz and others earlier this year. The company won’t confirm the amount (though we’ve heard it is a bit higher) but it has just revealed the full list on Quora. And it’s quite impressive, featuring some of the most well-known names in Silicon Valley:
Andreessen Horowitz – Marc Andreessen
Ashton Kutcher & Guy Oseary
For those that haven’t tried it (again, it’s just for college students for now), LikeALittle is sort of like Craigslist’s ‘Missed Connections’, but with more structure.
A typical message might read something like: “Brunette Haired Girl At UCLA: You were the handsome guy with glasses who killed it at karaoke last night”. Messages are initially anonymous, but the site includes a messaging platform so students can privately share more information.
You can also use the service to share non-flirty messages with people nearby (like, “Hey, anyone in the library want to study for the LS2 exam?”)
LikeALittle is now going by LAL (which is what students are already calling it, anyway). Stay tuned — we’ll have more about them in the very near future.
