YaSabe, America’s largest and fastest growing local search destination that caters to Hispanic consumers, announced today that they have closed a seed round of institutional and angel funding totaling $2.7M. According to the press release, they plan to use the funding for product development, marketing, and continued development of content, traffic, and advertiser partnerships.
YaSabe, which means ‘now you know’ in Spanish, connects millions of users annually to online listings, cultural content and community-sourced information with their fully bilingual interface. They provide content publishers and advertisers with syndicated, relevant content, revenue opportunities and expanded audiences. Because of its scale and focused bilingual content, YaSabe has helped to elevate search rankings across the Web for information that targets U.S. Hispanics.
Azim Tejani, YaSabe’s Executive Vice President, will be leading a workshop titled “Winning the Hispanic Market” at our upcoming conference in Las Vegas and we are really looking forward to his discussion.
