The amount of investment is not disclosed, but it is said to be several million yen.

JX Press is selected at Start2009, a business plan contest held by CyberAgent Ventures, DeNA and others, to get support. It has developed TweetMatch, tweets analysis service.

With the capital, it plans to provide vingow, a tool to streamline to share and organize knowledge and information. vingow allows users to save web pages or texts as memo on the Internet. All the memos will have tags automatically. Users can follow tags that they have interest to view contents of the tag saved by many users. The CEO of JX Press explained that if social media is centered around people, vingow is a brain media centered around information.

Japanese and English version will be released together and are available on PC, smartphone and tablet computers. It plans to release closed alpha version in June followed by official version in August.

  • It sounds quite like a social bookmark service, but a difference seems that tags are automatically added.
  • The first service from Startups2010, snapeee was just released a few weeks ago.
