More details are leaking out about Sean Parker’s first investment on behalf of The Founders Fund. We mentioned the Berkeley company, called Philotic, here.
Today, Dan Primack writes that it appears “to be an evolution of a politically-focused social networking site launched last fall called Predict06.com (site has since been disabled). The founder is a fellow ex-Facebooker named Joseph Green, and a regulatory filing indicates that it has secured around $1.2 million of a $2.75 million Series A round. Parker’s Founders Fund colleague Peter Thiel also is on the board. Here’s the filing: Philotic.pdf.”
