From San Francisco Chronicle comes this news about a local deal of note:
Today Valuevine announced the closing of a new round of investment and the completion of its acquisition of Caravan, as the company continues to establish itself as the leader in social media and location-based marketing technology services for retailers.
The company will use the additional funding to fuel customer acquisition and operational scaling of the business. Local Seattle area investors made up the majority of the round, led by Bellevue-based Mead Investments, Myers Partners, and local angel investors. As part of the round, key investors will join as board members and strategic advisors.
