IMVU is an online social networking website. The company was founded in 2004 by Will Harvey, Eric Ries, Marcus Gosling, and Matt Danzig. During the launch, the company was backed by venture investors, Menlo Ventures, AllegisCyber Capital, Bridgescale Partners, and Best Buy Capital. The company is publicly-owned. The Chief Executive Officer is Daren Tsui. The headquarters are located in Redwood City, CA. Though many people think otherwise, the company’s name is neither an acronym or initialism. The name is meaningless and does not stand for anything at all.
