We’re funded!

We’re funded!

March 4th, 2008

We know that we have been pretty quiet lately about our progress, and there is a good reason for that: we’ve been busy finalizing the details for our Series A round of funding. Well, we’re happy to report that it’s done: Brightkite is officially funded!

That’s all we’re going to reveal for now about our funding, but to make up for the lack of details, there are some other news: we just moved into new office space, not too far from the Denver Ballpark neighborhood.

Here’s a snapshot:

We’re friendly, so drop by and say hi if you’re in the area. If not, you can keep tabs on what’s going on at our office by checking it out on Brightkite.

Of course, you’re probably wondering where we’re at with the product. We’ve been in private beta for a little while now, and we’ve learned a lot. Based on our findings, we’re making some improvements to the site and our mobile versions, and will open up the beta to a much broader audience in the next few months. So please, bear with us…you won’t be disappointed!

I must say congratulations to you folks. I just started checking out your site about a week ago and I must say it is impressive. We are working on a similar project that takes in all sectors as a whole, with a social networking platform. It will be launched shortly. So you guys explode your horizon and bring in the bucks.
