We've got some very exciting news to announce. We have now closed our round of seed funding, raising $1.4 million from primarily UK investors alongside some US angels.
Our principal investors are Index Seed and PROfounders we also have Joi Ito, Esther Dyson, Joshua Schachter, Matt Biddulph, Blaine Cook, Matt Haughey, Tim Cederman-Haysom, William Burks Spencer, YCombinator and Start Fund.
We also have a selection of excellent advisors: Matt Haughey (MetaFilter), Andy Baio (Upcoming.org / Kickstarter / Expert Labs) and Tom Coates (ex Yahoo Brickhouse, now Product Club).
This seed funding is really great for us and means that we can focus on building an awesome product, create a great team and eventually a profitable business. If you're interested in working with Lanyrd, we're currently looking for a UX and Graphic Designer. If you'd like to apply, please send your CV, covering letter and portfolio details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
