Last couple of months have been very busy for us. We had a lot going on the product front. I am sure you have experienced some of that first hand (best deals, personalization, product pricing information, some plug-ins etc). We have lot more coming your way within next couple of months. And we were talking to potential investors in order for us to ramp up product development and marketing. We finally signed off with Norwest Venture Partners right before holidays. Matt Howard from Norwest liked the project from the get go, gave us heck of a time during his due diligence (he carries the reputation of being one of the toughest and hard working investor partner you can have) and finally joined Retrevo's extended team. Our current investor, Ammar Hanafi from Alloy Ventures has been a pleasure to work with through last year. His constant engagement, encouragement and "roll up your sleeves" attitude has made this journey enjoyable. So now we have two investor partners working on the problem with me :-). Now a word or two on Matt. In 2006, Matt joined the Forbes Midas List of top 100 dealmakers. I have enjoyed working with Matt in last couple of months. Insightful discussions with Matt during the due diligence are already influencing our thinking moving forward. You can read up more on Matt here. I took some time off last week. Just to decompress, spend time with my wife and daughter and get ready for an exciting 2007. We are gearing up for CES next week in Las Vegas. We will be covering CES live so don't forget to check out Retrevo for the latest and greatest happening on the floor of CES. In the meantime, fire away your experience, comments and thoughts about Retrevo on this blog or using the feedback link on our home page. Wishing you all a very happy, peaceful and successful 2007!
