Today TechCrunch announced that YC-backed Crowdtilt has raised a $12 million Series A round. From the article…
Today, TechCrunch has learned from sources that Crowdtilt has raised $12 million in Series A financing. It’s the startup’s second round of funding, following its $2.1 million seed round back in May, which it raised from SV Angel, Crunch Fund, Y Combinator partners Paul Buchheit, Alexis Ohanian, Harj Taggar and Garry Tan, and DCM and Felicis Ventures.
It was an impressive roster of investors for being a few months removed from its graduation from Y Combinator, and we’re hearing that the interest has continued, with the startup closing its series A in four days. According to our sources, investors in its Series A include Napster, Plaxo, Causes and Airtime founder Sean Parker, Andreessen Horowitz (rumored to be through General Partner Chris Dixon), as well as existing investors like YC’s partners, CrunchFund, DCM and Felicis.
Rumor has it that Crowdtilt is planning a big push into mobile. Read more @ TechCrunch.
