Adzerk raises $650,000 seed round
Posted Jul 15, 2011 by James Avery
I am proud to announce that Adzerk has raised a $650,000 seed round. By raising money we can accelerate our engineering efforts and continue to provide top-notch support to our current customers. Over the next couple of months you can expect to see Adzerk moving very quickly with both new features and new customers.
Our great group of investors includes:
Great Oaks Venture Capital
Investors in Invite Media, Trulia, 33Across, StubHub and many more.
Nat Turner and Zach Weinberg
The co-founders of Invite Media and two of the sharpest guys I ever met. (and I don’t have to say that since we already have their checks)
Bob has been involved in Adzerk since I first spun it out of Infozerk – he has been an amazing partner and I am thrilled that he has the confidence in Adzerk to put in more of his money. In the past Bob has invested in other amazing startups like ICanHazCheezburger, Cafepress, Wildtangent, and many more.
Peter is the other individual who has been involved with Adzerk since it began – Peter knows more about the advertising industry then anyone I have ever met. In the past Peter ran IAC, About.com, and many many other great companies.
Brian is our only local investor – Brian engineered spinning Accipiter out of CMGI and building an incredible company which was acquired by aQuantive six months before aQuantive was acquired by Microsoft for 6+ billion dollars.
As the founder of both Crazy Egg and Kiss Metrics, Neil knows a thing or two about internet startups. We are thrilled to have him as an investor in Adzerk.
Raising money has been a very interesting process and I plan on blogging about it quite a bit over on our team blog.
