Quiksee, also known as MentorWave Technologies, allows users to create location-based interactive media content. Its web-based content, the company says, “lets you quickly and easily create stunning virtual tours.” Two investment groups have put $3.5 million into Quiksee, Ofer Hi-Tech and Docor International, while a number of private investment “angels” have also backed the firm. The deal is estimated at $10 million. http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition/business/google-buying-second-israeli-startup-quiksee-1.313483
