It’s nice when good sites get VC!

June 15, 2007

Heard today that DeviantArt have received $3.5m in series A funding. I’ve been a fan of the site and have bought prints (and used images for wallpaper) from it for years. It’s been around for 7 years and has a really strong community behind it (and did from the start). It’s testament to the old skool community based sites which have been doing what the newcomers think they’ve invented for a long time.

Good work! Now use the money wisely to build on the fantastic social network you already have!
