This is one lucky startup. Shaker, the winner of TC’s recent disrupt battle just closed a financing round for a whooping $15 million. Now that’s a lot of money for a facebook app, but considering the startup’s potential, the funding is pretty reasonable. I just hope that they put the money to good use.
Shaker investors are of the venture capital elites. Sherwin Pishevar (which is madly in love with the startup) of Menlo Ventures and Mike Arrington’s Crunchfund all participated in the new round. Not bad for startup founded in Israel.
Shaker is a virtual world inside facebook where you use your facebook information as your identity.
