Chicago based 37 Signals, which has shunned venture capital in the past, has taken an investment from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos through his Bezos Expeditions fund. No word on the size of the investment or other details. 37 Signals says they aren’t interested in cash or contacts, they just want access to Jeff. In my opinion this is a great deal for both sides.
