Venture Wrap: Wikio, Kiptronic and Sun


It’s shaping up to be another busy week in venture land:

* Kiptronic, a podcasting ad network company which has a marketplace of 47 million available downloads, has raised $4m in Series A funding from Blueprint Ventures and Prism VentureWorks. The existing angel investors who tipped in the seed round of  $400k, also contributed.

* Wikio has raised $5.3m in Series A funding from Lightspeed Venture Partners and Gemini Israel Funds. Wikio is best decribed as a mashup of Technorati, Digg and Google News and is based in Luxembourg.

* Private equity firm, Kohlberg Kravis Robert is reported to be investing $700m into Sun.

  1. I gave a try to Wikio and it’s an amazing information system with personalized tabs and a cool tags navigation… a kind of “all-in-one” web site in the middle of Google News, Technorati and Digg.
