Going.com Lands $5 million

going.pngEvent based social network Going.com has taken an additional $5 million in funding, in a round led by the sites original investors General Catalyst Partners and Highland Capital Partners.

Going.com recently passed 500,000 users, up from 200,000 users in early June and an impressive feat considering the service currently only operates in four cities: New York, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco.

George Bell and Bob Davis from General Catalyst and Highland Capital respectively will remain on the Going.com board of directors.

Going.com competes with Minglenow, Socialzr and LateNightShots. Going.com was previously known as HeyLetsGo.
