WantWorthy, a website bookmarking service for shoppers, has raised $1m from a consortium including online search engine Google’s corporate venturing unit.

Venture capital firms RRE Ventures, which led the round, and Quotidian Ventures joined Google Ventures and several angels in WantWorthy’s seed round.

The angels included University of Pennsylvania professor Eric Bradlow, who taught WantWorthy co-founders Lauren McDevitt and Joshua Wais, and previously backed Invite Media, which sold to Google in 2010, according to news provider PandoDaily.
