Stamped is a recommendation experiences company that has launched an iPhone application. Stamped is backed by Google Ventures. Stamped connects to your Facebook and Twitter network and uses these social networking services to provide experience recommendations in an organized way.
?While there?s lots of ways to do shouts or check-ins about places that appeal to a small demographic of extroverts that like to tell everyone where they are, we still look for better ways for people to put their thumbprint on things, places that they like,? stated Google Ventures partner Rich Miner in an interview with VentureBeat. ?I think Stamped makes that real simple. And with a very simple, straightforward metaphor that everyone likes to tell people about the things they like.?
Bain Capital also previously invested in Stamped as part of the Series A investment. Stamped is based in New York. Stamped aims to solve the current problem that recommendation companies have. For example if you see a 3 star rating from 70 strangers, what does that mean? That is the current weakness that recommendation services have.
