PowerReviews Lands $15 Million

Austin’s own BazaarVoice isn’t the only social marketing company raking in the funding these days. PowerReviews, out of Millbrae California just announced a $15 million new infusion from Lehman Brothers Venture Partners along with current investors Menlo Ventures and Draper Richards.

In the user generated review space, I’ll watch for Bazaar and Power to fight it out as they appear to be the only ones really making any headway. I wonder if, BazaarVoice CEO, Brett Hurt has something up his sleeve. He basically invented the space and I don’t see him sitting around while his biggest competitor gets more funding. Brett, shoot me an email or post a comment…give me the scoop.
