Audioboo gets further cash from 4iP

Over the weekend we wrote about Bump Technologies’ recent funding round led by Sequoia Capital, which was revealed (perhaps accidentally) during Sequoia Partner Greg McAdoo’s presentation at Y Combinator‘s Startup School. Bump declined to comment on the round on Saturday, but they’ve now confirmed that the round has just closed. They still wouldn’t confirm the exact amount of the round, but we’ve heard it’s over $3 million.

Bump did disclose the angel investors joining the round, and they’ve got some impressive names on board:

Ram Shriram (Sherpalo Ventures; founding board member at Google)
Ron Conway (SV Angel LLC)
Joshua Schachter (founder, Delicious)
Aydin Senkut (Felicis Ventures)

Bump CEO David Lieb says that the company plans to use the financing to extend Bump beyond the iPhone (I suspect we’ll see an Android version), and to expand the team.
