Web marketer Viralon shuts down

Published on .

San Francisco--Start-up Viralon ceased operations Thursday after just five months, citing a lack of corporate interest in new Web marketing services. The company was financed to the tune of $3 million by an all-star roster of Internet entrepreneurs, including Viralon founder and former Netscape and Inktomi executive Alex Edelstein. Former Netscape marketing executive Mike Homer, TellMe Networks CEO Mike McCue, Chase Hambrecht & Quist Managing Director David Golden and Angel Investor's Ron Conway were also involved. The company fired 30 employees and closed its San Francisco office.
