Zhiguoguo, a Beijing company that offers free trademark registration and other low cost IP-related legal services across China, has raised $3.7 million from Matrix Partners China and Legend Star. The company hopes to capitalize on the expected 30 percent year over year growth in trademark registration in the country.

MyTime, an online appointment booking service for small businesses in the automotive, cosmetic, health, and dental industries, has raised $9.3 million from Upfront Ventures, Khosla Ventures, Daher Capital, the Westfield Corporation, and returning investor Accelerator Ventures. MyTime’s mobile app reportedly has listings from 2 million businesses, and employs a dynamic pricing model to encourage “off-peak” appointments. The company is based in San Francisco. “America’s small businesses are falling massively behind when it comes to finding, booking, and paying for services online, even more so when it comes to mobile,” said MyTime CEO Ethan Anderson through a statement. “This new funding allows us to expand our focus.”
