Company Details

Update

Spock is a people search engine which collects data from all corners of the web with a heavy focus on areas with dense people information such as wikipedia, photo sites, blogs and social networks. Spock claims people search accounts for 30% of online search and thus they are directly taking on giants like Google and Amazon (product search). If the 30% is accurate then the market is ripe for identity searching companies to expand.

Spock's closest competitors include Copenda,PeekYou, ProfileLinker, LinkedIn, and Wink which has been around since 2005, yet only launched its people search engine in November 2006. Spock received $7 million in funding from Opus Capital and Clearstone Venture Partners.
