LockerDome is an interest-based social network founded in 2008 in St. Louis, Missouri, by CEO Gabe Lozano.[2] Launched as a sports-themed social network, it expanded to other interests with the launch of LockerDome 3.0 in December 2013. The new design took cues from Pinterest with "lockers" for compartmentalizing interests.[3][4][5]

According to the company, LockerDome saw three million monthly unique visitors in November 2012, four million in December 2012,[6] about 20 million in December 2013,[7] and more than 75 million in November 2014.[8]

As of December 2014, the company has raised more than $18 million, including $10 million from a Series B funding round led by Cultivation Capital.[9]
