PeerIndex raise $3M
And then PeerIndex raised money, about 10% of what Klout has raised but I feel they will get more in next 12 months. http://semanticweb.com/peerindex-raises-3m-in-funding_b27556
There is definitely room for 2-3 players in the space but Klout have been very good at building an elegant website and people actually talk about it as a currency. I think they are still very slow on Europe though, this is because they see US as the target market but the “influential group” they need is so small, the winner will be a global story. Maybe Klout and PeerIndex should merge and then get acquired?
As a simple user I hope there is more free stuff for Europeans ;)
Regardless good luck to @Azeem and team. I hope they make a more exciting site with really nice offers!
