Gnip Raises Another Round

One Comment

Today Gnip announced they have raised a $3.5m round that follows their seed financing .  We invested along with our friends at First Round Capital and SoftTech VC.

Gnip has made a ton of progress since we initially funded it at the beginning of the year.  I wrote about the initial financing when Gnip launched in July in my post Gnip is Ping Spelled BackwardsSince they launched, the founders (Eric Marcoullier and Jud Valeski) have build a great technical and product oriented team, launched v2.0 of Gnip, have continued to make great progress on fleshing out the initial idea into a business, and have made some important decisions about their near term product roadmap.

Gnip is part of our Glue investment theme and is one of my favorite places to invest – in the "software infrastructure layer" of the Internet.  Other companies that we’ve invested before in this area include FeedBurner and Postini.  Here’s hoping that Gnip can walk in their footsteps.

    The idea behind Gnip is brilliant. Makes complete sense.

    Planning to play around with this weekend and see if we can use it in http://Twitter.Grader.com
