Holt, Kopelman collaborate on search-marketing firm

Plymouth Meeting, PA, Sept. 28, 2007-  Two of the area's best-known technology entrepreneurs have teamed up again in a company that's just starting to publicize itself.


Lucinda Duncalfe Holt is the CEO of Commerce360 Inc. and Josh Kopelman is one of its directors. First Round Capital, the West Conshohocken early-stage venture firm that Kopelman co-founded, is an investor in Commerce360.


Holt was the CEO and Kopelman was the chairman of TurnTide Inc., a Conshohocken-based developer of an anti-spam router. Founded in January 2004, TurnTide was bought six months later by Cupertino, Calif.-based Symantec Inc. for $28 million in cash.
