"SocialRadar is on the cutting edge of developing social location-based technology. Today over 1.1 billion people have smartphone devices that can broadcast their locations, and over 2.8 billion people have social profiles online. In the future, technology will inevitably combine the smartphone's location with the power of social networks enabling users to walk into a room and be aware of the people and connections around them. SocialRadar is developing that technology today for the iPhone, Android and Google Glass," said Michael Chasen, the President & CEO of SocialRadar. "I could not be happier that some of the leading venture capitalists and technology experts have come together to invest in this vision."
