Today we’re announcing that MightyMeeting is the fourth startup to raise money with AngelList. MightyMeeting is “WebEx for iPad” and it also works on iPhone and the Web. They also happen to be based in New York.
George Zachary from Charles River Ventures introduced us to MightyMeeting’s founder, Dmitri Tcherevik. I think George met Dmitri at Founder Showcase. George was already committed to the financing and wanted to use AngelList to help raise the rest of the round. We sent MightyMeeting to AngelList, and Dmitri got 10 intros in 4 days. The AngelList investors, including George, are:
George Zachary (Investor in Twitter) Bill Lee (Investor in Tesla Motors) Andrea Zurek (Investor in Tapulous) Shervin Pishevar (Investor in Gowalla)
Great startups can raise money wherever they are. In this case, a bunch of Silicon Valley investors invested in a New York startup. But AngelList has investors from all over the world (New York, London, Boston, LA, Europe…). And startups apply for intros from all over the world (Israel, Sweden, Italy, Argentina…).
