Webjam Raises £1 Million in First-Round Funding


Before you go cuddling up to Anson, it’s not our WebJam. Some, no doubt vastly inferior imitation, other WebJam. I didn’t go too far into it, just signed up really but it actually doesn’t look too bad – sort of a Ning.com competitor, with drag and drop blocks (blogs, forums, and so on):

A London-based start-up founded by Yahoo! veterans, WebjamOpens in a new tab., provides individuals and communities with an innovative and versatile platform to create, aggregate and share contents online. The investment from French early stage venture capital firm I-Source Gestion will fuel further product development and global expansion.
