It’s a slow news week in VC-land:

Comcast Ventures has invested $11 million in Integrate, an ad-spending software company headed by former Olympic skier and Philadelphia Eagle kick returner Jeremy Bloom. The Denver-based company will open up offices in the 67th Ward and San Francisco.

According to an SEC filing, Tersa Therapeutics has raised $28 million.

The Next Web has the behind-the-scenes story of the Sqoot controversy. You may remember, the former DreamIt Ventures company was widely criticized for sexist language on a hackathon signup page.

First Round Capital is among the firms to invest in Yummly. The recipe search site raised $6 million in a Series A round.

Pete Musser, CEO of Safeguard Scientifics, was awarded the Schoemaker Leadership Award by PA BIO.
