Inporia’s current product is Kaleidoscope - a inspiration ecommerce app and widget.
Kaleidoscope launched on Android in Feburary 2011 and was made available for the iPhone in April 2011. It’s the first in what promises to be a series of ecommerce-driven apps from parent company Inporia. The four-person company was started by Ryan Junee, a serial entrepreneur who co-founded Omnisio (acquired by Google in 2008) and serves as a mentor to 500 Startups and StartMate, and Max Skibinsky. Sarah Kunst and Simon Ratner complete the 4 person team. It raised $1.25 million in seed funding from Ron Conway’s SV Angel and 500 Startups, NEA, Start Fund and Y-Combinator among others.
