Boxee Raises $4 Million
quick intro to boxee from boxee on Vimeo.
One of the most talked about startups in NYC has proven that VC money is available even in a tough economy. Featured in Forbes.com several weeks ago (thanks to the efforts of Bruni PR), Boxee is an amazing media sharing platform that allows viewers to share and rate videos, music and photos. Fred Wilson, Union Square Ventures, one of the investors, calls it the "Firefox" of media browsing. This young startup first presented at NY Video Meetup and NY Tech Meetup just a few months back, and are now poised to partner with the media giants. Congrats to Avner Ronen and his team of young Israeli geeks.
