It’s true. We have been running hard since January signing up publishers left and right. In the process we have run across some really interesting people and their stuff. For instance did you know there was an expert out there on pencils? We didn’t until they became Lijit. How about a lady that reviews public restrooms? Or writes about narcolepsy? Or…throws down on sports announcers? You guessed it, they are all now Lijit.
All this success made it clear to us this spring we needed to find some venture money to help us grow this thing. Strictly speaking Lijit was already growing itself, and if we didn’t get out in front of it we were going to be in trouble.
After talking to a lot of really good guys out there we decided on Boulder Ventures. They really understood the big picture of what we are trying to accomplish here and will be an awesome addition to the Lijit Board of Directors.
As a result of the funding, we are looking for some more people to augment the team (we’ll double it). This Thursday at 4pm we are having a little open house here at the office and across the hall in our temporary expansion space. Come by and have a beer. If you are a Database expert or a RockStar developer we may try to hire you on the spot, so be warned.
To our publishers, thanks for all your support over the last 6 months, we could not have done it without you!
