Senior Social Network, Eons Raises $22 Mill
Jeff Taylor has had quite a track-record with Internet success. First Taylor founded Monster Board now known as Monster.com, the largest job search web site that has over 41 million resumes in its database and has a market cap of $6.12 billion. Then in August of 2005, Taylor left Monster.com and started Eons, Inc., a web site for seniors. Today, Eons Inc. announced that the company has raised $22 million in venture financing.
“Thereâ€™s emerging positive attention around the fact that boomers are using the web not just for email and photo-sharing, but day-to-day activities,” said Jeff Taylor. “There are 88 million people over 50 in the United States and half of them are online.”
Eons Inc. features group associations, blogging tools, games, family & friend content, financial advice, fitness and wellness advice, and a feature to share life dreams and life stories. There is a new feature called Travel sponsored by Hyatt that list deals for various locations around the world including Italy, Alaska, and Costa Rica.@amitchowdhry or on Google+ at +AmitChowdhry
