Refresh appA trio of venture capital funds have backed a $10m financing round for Refresh, a mobile app which provides an instant information dossier on people.

Redpoint Ventures, Charles River Ventures and Foundation Capital all took part in the round for the 18-month-old company.

The app aims to help give users bullet point data to use in conversations with their target person, such as their hobbies, friendships and recent blog posts.

Earlier this month Redpoint hired Twitter’s former director of platform Ryan Sarver as a partner to help deploy its fifth fund.

The Menlo Park-based firm also announced that principal Tomasz Tunguz has been promoted to partner and Jamie Davidson has joined the team as a senior associate.

Charles River, the oldest early-stage venture firm in the US, is currently investing from its $375m fifteenth fund, which was heavily oversubscribed when it close in February last year.
