The Washington Post reported yesterday that the DC-based Blue Tiger Labs, the company responsible for the shopping list price comparison app StockUp, raised $4 million from investors.

Participants in this round of fundraising include The Entrepreneurs’ Fund, Eniac Ventures, ITA Software founder Dave Baggett, and local entrepreneurs Mark Ein and Haroon Mokhtarzada.

Formerly known as PriceSpotting, StockUp allows users to compile their shopping list on the app, and then compare the prices of those items at nearby stores. With this funding, CEO Neil Kataria plans to separate StockUp from Blue Tiger Labs and create StockUp Commerce, which will allow focus on the one app. StockUp plans to launch in cities across the country later this summer.
