Widgetbox Received $8 Million for their Widgets

Widgetbox raised $8 Million in Series B funding from Sequoia Capital, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, NCD Investors, and private investor, Michael Dearing.

What does the Widgetbox do?

Widgetbox is a platform for widgets to host and provide reporting.

VCU says:

Widgetbox provides a platform for anyone to create a widget. Widgetbox is an easy to use service that allows you to make a simple or complex widget. For example below is a very professional looking widget that was made by simply pointing to the Venture Capital Update RSS feed. The widget that is created has code to make it available on multiple social networks. All the work is done for you.

You may also grab any widget in their directory to use on your own site or social profile.

Reporting is also provided. Daily reports let you know the number of installations and hits you have received to your widget.

Feel free to grab the widget above for your own site and take a look at Widgetbox.
