Business 2.0 journalist Om Malik published an exclusive announcement on his blog yesterday stating that Six Apart is about to secure more venture funding in their series B round, with the lead investor said to be August Capital. In his post, Malik said the amount of money raised is still under a shroud, though it could be well over $5 million.
Recently, Six Apart launched new TypePad services in Belgium and The Netherlands, bringing to five the total number of European countries in which localized TypePad services are now available (see my post earlier this week).
In early September, Six Apart announced a new collaborative partnership with Nokia to combine capabilities from TypePad with Nokia’s Lifeblog, an application that lets people keep a multimedia diary of the items collected with mobile phones (see Six Apart’s press release).
Update 8 October: Six Apart announced yesterday that it has received $10 Million in Series B funding from August Capital. See press release.
