Retrevo Received $8 Million for Electronic Matchmaking Service

Retrevo received $8 Million in Series B funding from Alloy Ventures and Norwest Venture Partners. Retrevo previously received $3.2 Million of Series A funding.

What does Retrevo do?

Retrevo is a search and reference site for electronics.

VCU says:

Retrevo provides a specialized search as opposed to a search such as Google which is more specific. By specialized I am referring to search with a focus on a particular vertical, or genre, or related items of some sort, such as sports search, cooking search, in this case consumer electronic search. Whether or not this is a hit or considered valueable by consumers, well, only consumers will tell.

After using the search provided by Retrevo I found that the obvious benefit of specialized search yielding more relevant results, they actually provided many value add benefits as well. It was not just raw search but they segmented the search results into categories based on source of the information, such as Manufacturers, Reviews & Articles, Forums & Blogs, and Shopping. They also provide a preview window of the results you highlight, I found this very helpful to see the results without leaving their search.

Keep an eye on this one, and give it a try.
