Ex-Expedia Exec Raises Funds For Secretive New Startup


A former executive from Expedia has secured funding for his new startup, though the details on the new project are scarce.

According to reports by GeekWire on Wednesday (Nov. 23), Jeff Warren has secured investment from Idealab and other backers to the tune of $325,106, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Warren served as VP of global product, mobile, destination and customer engagement at Expedia.

His new company, Closer Mobile, will reportedly operate within the on-demand services market, but details on exactly what it will do are unclear. Warren spoke to the publication and said that Closer Mobile is currently in stealth mode and won’t be releasing further details about the company until either later this year or early 2017.

This isn’t Warren’s first startup. In 2009, he launched Mooi, a company that aimed to offer a service for users to connect their calendars and share content and news within a private network.
