SEATTLE, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Founded by two former Microsoft execs, Ryan Hamlin and George Webb, PlaceFull has raised $1 Million in seed funds from several angel investors in the Seattle area. PlaceFull is a local startup helping small businesses grow and expand their online presence by providing flexible marketing solutions and online booking capabilities. These funds will be used to power PlaceFull's expansion into new markets across the U.S. and to speed the adoption of PlaceFull's Private Label Platform, a back-end solution that allows businesses to embed online booking on their own websites.
Discovering memorable party venues and event service providers has never been so simple, fun or easy for busy parents and event planning professionals alike. Being discovered by busy parents has never been so easy for a local business!
"Today consumers expect merchants to have the ability to book online. Already, over 60% of our bookings occur after businesses have gone home for the night. That is why we created PlaceFull; we want to make it convenient and seamless for consumers to be able to purchase online, which helps drive more revenue to local merchants." -Ryan Hamlin, CEO
Six months after launch, PlaceFull has over 550 listings in the Seattle and Portland areas and has brought in tens of thousands of dollars in revenue for local businesses. There are plans in the works to expand PlaceFull into new markets.
