Arum Kang, founder and CEO of Coffee Meets Bagel has an ambitious goal for the dating website she started with her two sisters. Her daily dating deal site introduces you to one match every day at noon. Coffee Meets Bagel has raised $600,000 in seed investment from Lightbank and investors including Match.com co-founder Peng T. Ong, reported TechCrunch this morning.

Arum Kang shared her thoughts on getting started on a startup without a technical co-founder on Women 2.0 in March 2012, and launched the service in New York in April 14.

Congrats to Arum Kang and her team at Coffee Meets Bagel on the seed funding to take the service to additional cities!
