When reading the venture capital investments news of the week, one can easily understand that the interest towards these fields of activity is higher than ever. Just by taking a quick look at the venture capital news, we find out that Gigya has obtained $6 million in order to make websites more social. This amount comes as a C round of funding from investors at DAG Ventures, Benchmark Capital, First Round Capital and Mayfield Fund. The purpose of the Israeli developers of the software is that of helping ABC, ESPN and Reuters make their websites resemble more to social networks, providing thus an interactive environment and a higher interest and information flow for the readers. The present passion for alternate reality has brought the Fourth Wall Studios to raise $15 million in venture capital to be used for the creation of several alternate reality games. The funding comes from the Soon-Shiong’s California Capital Equity. The partnership with Patrick Soon-Shiong, the co-owner of the LA Lakers basketball team, has the purpose of creating a studio that will mix the real and the digital world in an entertaining manner. As the Fourth Wall has focused on producing stories that can be accessed from diverse devices as the cell phone, computer, consulate video games, this new product of theirs may really come as a new definition of the entertainment world. But these are not the only successful examples as a start-up company, Breezy, has managed to raise $750,000 from big-name investors for its easy mobile printing software. The money comes from famous investors such as Jeff Clavier’s firm, SoftTech VC, Accel Partners and Felicis Ventures. This business idea comes as a result of the demands on the market and, even though the amount raised in venture capital is not huge, the future perspectives of the product are quite promising. Although their product will have to go against the AirPrint or the iPhone, Breezy seems to get ahead due to their widely spread partner network, including hotels, copy shops and other partner locations.
