WHO’S GETTING FUNDED?
Rick Nucci‘s stealth mode startup, Guru Technologies, has raised $2.7 million to date, according to an SEC filing. This is Nucci’s first startup after selling his cloud computing company Boomi to Dell for an undisclosed amount.
Sidecar, the ecommerce marketing platform, has raised $1 million from local investors (many of which are repeat investors) like GSI Commerce founder Michael Rubin, Gabriel Investments, NextStage Capital, MidAtlantic Angel Group, Robin Hood Ventures and Wilmington, Del.-based Innovation Ventures, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. The Center City startup is looking to nearly double its staff to 50, we reported in November.
WHO’S MAKING MOVES?
VisionMine, the venture from investor Ellen Weber and consultant Coley Brown that helps connect startups with corporations, helped keep Chris Cera‘s startup Vuzit afloat back in 2009 and 2010, Business Insider reported in a feature on how corporations can be customers for startups.
OneTwoSee, the sports-TV companion app startup, will start building apps with Bloomberg Sports, according to a release. It also moved out of Center City’s Seed Philly incubator and into its own office in the same building at 1650 Arch Street, cofounder Chris Reynolds told us. The startup recently demoed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and currently has 10 employees.
