(PRWEB) February 06, 2012
Rock The Post announced today the closing of its Seed Round after successfully raising 700,000 dollars from American, Canadian, and Spanish angel investors.
There are a total of 8 angel investors who are participating in this initial round of financing.
Rock The Post is a New York City based startup; their platform seeks to meld social networking and crowdfunding. The objective of Rock The Post is to be a platform that erases the intermediary figure in business interactions around the world. The number one focus is to offer a platform that allows individuals to form complimentary and strategic partnerships that will forward the project or business venture.
The social networks that exist today only give the opportunity to interact with people from your circle and they are not designed to allow users to go beyond that limiting realm. With this obstacle in mind, Rock The Post has created a platform that allows users to contact people outside of their circle of friends and family, and that are looking to partner up in the context of money, time, and/or materials.
“We are thrilled with this closing given that the funds are going to help Rock The Post to further the growth and expansion of the platform,” added Tanya Prive, Rock The Post Co-Founder and COO.
The business social network launched on November 22, 2011. Currently it has over 18,000 users from over 140 countries and more than 90 active projects. Moreover, in the short period of time the site has been live, it has been able to complete 7 projects, which are shown in the “Successful” section. The projects that are uploaded are of all types, from technology or energy to design and photography.
The Problem and The Solution
The issue: having success on a new project or venture requires different circumstances to be align perfectly; a good idea, the right team to carry out the execution, the investment funds and of course the perfect cocktail of partners. This is the reason why only a few ideas and projects are able to grow and prosper.

How does it work?
The way this business social network works is very simple. First users register, after they will create a post under the desired category specifying the type of partnership they are seeking, by investment or pledge of money, time, and/or materials. Once the post is uploaded thousands of other users will have access to it, deciding whether they would like to participate or not. It is in this instance that complementary partnerships form and projects, ideas, businesses or causes develop.
