After countless meetings, investment pitches, and many documents signed, madKast is delighted to announce that we have closed our Series A round of investment for $300,000 from a group of extremely well-qualified and influential investors.
Most of the investment that we have raised will be spent on hiring a couple of rockstar developers to help Tony build the cool technology that we have in the pipeline. If you know anyone who might be interested, please let us know as we'd love to interview him or her.
Specificially, the investment will allow us to improve our share widget, build an advanced widget distribution platform and allow us to initiate enterprise level custom widget installations. We'll talk more in depth about each of these in future blog posts.
More important than the actual dollars raised is the caliber of the investors that have joined our team. Our talented group of investors includes: EONBusiness Venture Capital, Brad Feld (Managing Director of Foundry Group), David Cohen (Executive Director of TechStars), Jared Polis (Founder of BlueMountain.com and ProFlowers.com), Paul Berberian (Founder and CEO of Raindance Communications; founder of Market Force Information), David Brown (Founder and President of ZOLL Data Systems), and Marc Silverman (Executive Director of CTEK Boulder). Each investor brings a unique skill set to madKast that we intend to take full advantage of.
We look forward to working with this fine group of investors over the coming months.
