Sonico Boom

SonicoLogo.jpgSonico, a Latin American social network aimed at organizing users’ online lives, can organize its bank account with an additional $1.7 million in funding raised by DN Capital and other major national and international investors.

The company was founded in July 2007, and it topped 43 million members this month, also joining the Google- and Yahoo!-led OpenSocial platform.

Sonico founder and CEO Rodrigo Teijeiro said:

This influx of capital will help us boost our office in Brazil and grow our social-communications platform, allowing us to incorporate key improvements for our users. We will also continue to focus on developing strategic alliances and attracting the best talent in the industry.

It’s been a busy and very rewarding year. In 2010, our efforts will concentrate on further developing the “organize your life online” concept, which allows users to have a personal profile, a professional profile and a public profile, all of them managed from a single account.
