Seesmic founder Loic Le Meur wrote a long blog post about his $6 million Series A round of funding today (I am an investor in this company). Most of the round was taken by Atomico (founded by Skype’s Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis), and rounded out with a long list of angel investors. Much of this was reported late last year.
This is Loic’s fourth or fifth startup, but his first in the U.S. (he’s French). Seesmic, a video-focused startup that is very twitter-like in its ability to facilitate random discussions, is doing well in its closed beta period. We aren’t covering it much given the conflict of interest, but this is a company I expect great things from, which is why I invested. See Dave Winer, VentureBeat, Mark Evans, Ryan Stewart, TheNextWeb and others for their thoughts.
