Qrank, a company that develops games that make use of social media, will come off its seed round of funding this week a little stronger for having scored an investment from early Twitter VP Jason Goldman. Goldman was one of five investors involved in the funding round, which raised $350,000.
The company reportedly plans to use the money from this funding round to expand its platform and its customer base. The company launched a year and a half ago. Goldman, who served an important role in Twitter’s early development, has been serving in an advisory capacity with the company since June.
Qrank was launched by Austin-based Ricochet Labs. The company introduced a version of Qrank for Facebook in June of 2010. “QRANK Facebook is another example of how Ricochet Labs is redefining the social game experience,” Ricochet Lab CEO Rodney Gibbs said in a statement at the time. “Few if any games allow iPhone users to play directly with Facebook users.
