Posted on September 3, 2010

Yesterday, Archives.com's parent company Inflection made two major announcements: one about a $30 million Series A financing round led by Matrix Partners and Sutter Hill Ventures, and another about the launch of new website PeopleSmart.com. (read the press releases here)

Inflection's goal is to organize and provide easy access to public records past and present. Archives will focus on serving users looking for historical content, while PeopleSmart is primarily for those looking to find information about living people. PeopleSmart has built in privacy safeguards, and allows users control over their information.

Visit PeopleSmart.com to learn what you can and can't do, and how it's different from other websites out there.

We're excited about closing this round of funding, and continuing on a rapid growth trajectory. In the near term, Archives will be increasing content acquisition and digitization efforts, and hiring A-players to help us iterate and add new features.

Visit the Inflection website to learn more about our work, leadership team, and core values.
