Pluck gets $8.5M from Mayfield VC

Web search technology developer Pluck Corp. of Austin, Texas, will support its innovative browsing companion technology with a new $8.5 million second round of funding led by Sand Hill Road blue-chip venture firm Mayfield.

The company, which introduced its new Web search application about five months ago, turned to first-time investor Mayfield of Menlo Park, Calif., and prior investor Austin Ventures of Austin for the funding. Pluck chief executive Dave Panos, a former venture partner with Austin Ventures, said the funding represented a "significant up round" but declined to provide further details.
