Skift Take

The next $4 million funding is large for a local recommendation app, especially with lots of competition, but strange are the ways of VCs who play favorites with certain buzzy founders and startups. What'll ultimately matter would be if it can scale.

Sosh is the ultimate hipster app — it curates things that are new, fun, weird and memorable. If something gets bookmarked by too many people, it’s no longer pushed to other users. And for now, it’s only in San Francisco.

Sosh just closed $4 million in Series A funding led by Battery Ventures. But wait, venture-backed start-ups are supposed to be scalable, right?
