edgeio secures $5m series A financing

edgeio_logo.jpgI may be biased but I think edgeio is one day going to be a great company 🙂

Well today we made a few announcements and several people have picked up on them.

Firstly, we have secured a Series A round of financing, led by Intel Capital. Secondly we have launched a Chinese language web site at mulu100.com. Thirdly we have completed the filing of our patent application, originally initiated in October 2005.

There is a lot more coming from us, and some of it quite soon. But this is a great day for me and my partners, Mike Arrington, Matt Kaufman and Vidar Hokstad, and for those who have joined us since we launched. Its also great for our angel investors, our customers and our partners.
