Fluidinfo is funded!

May 24th, 2010 by Terry Jones. Filed under Happiness.

We’re thrilled to announce that Fluidinfo have just closed a small Series A round ($800K) led by Betaworks, with participation from IA Ventures, RRE Ventures, Lerer Ventures, Chris Dixon and the Founder Collective, Joshua Schacter, Andrew Rasiej, Ross Williams, Esther Speight, and Ed Carroll. They’ll be joined by early Fluidinfo seed funder Esther Dyson. We’ve been talking on and off to Betaworks for two years, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the close relationship we’ve developed with them over that time, and with the fit of our collective visions and aims.

We’d never have gotten this far without the support of several early “sweat equity” contributors and 17 friends and family seed investors – our huge thanks to that group too.

Fluidinfo is now a US (Delaware) corporation, thanks to the efforts of Gunderson Dettmer, and for the time being we’ll be based out of the dynamic Betaworks offices in New York. As you’d expect, we’re looking for a few passionate programmers to join the team.

In other news, we’ve been selected as a finalist in TechCrunch Disrupt Startup Battlefield, and we’re most of the way through a major overhaul to the Fluidinfo web site, with more good stuff to come.

I’ll stop now, to try to keep this short. Watch this space for some upcoming posts.
