Palo Alto based Opzi, a stealth Y Combinator startup that will debut at TechCrunch Disrupt next week, has closed an impressive first round of financing – nearly $1 million from SV Angel, First Round Capital, Naval Ravikant, Jeff Clavier’s SoftTech VC, Hadi Partovi, Ali Partovi, Paul Buchheit, Fritz Lanman and Raymond Tonsing.
That’s quite a syndicate. And equally impressive is founder Euwyn Poon. Poon graduated from Cornell University at the age of 18 and subsequently received a J.D. from Cornell Law School in 2007. He then practiced law for two years. Now, all of 25 years old, he’s founded one of the hot startups of the year.
What is Opzi? You’ll have to wait until next week to see when they debut on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt.
