What Will Become of Become.com?
MarketWatch’s Tech doe Bambi Francisco previews the new shopping search engine Become.com which is set to launch tomorow. The startups’ founders – Michael Yang and Yeogirl Yun previously founded MySimon which they pawned off on CNet for $700M. The secret sauce in the new venture is that in addition to offering listings of products, it includes articles and reviews about the products. Founder Yang claims that he is investing $2M out of his own bank account in the venture. Angel investor Ron Conway put in another $2.5M.
