From the Filings…

What follows is a set of VC funding items culled from recent Regulation D filings with the SEC (plus a bit of extra research, in some cases). None of these deals have been otherwise announced:

Apptrigger Inc., a Richardson, Texas-based maker of an application session controller, has raised around $21.5 million in Series C funding. It already has called down the first $15.66 million, with the remainder being called down tomorrow. Return backers include Star Ventures, Sevin Rosen Funds, CenterPoint Venture Partners and Chisholm Private Capital. A new investor will participate in tomorrow’s closing, but it has not yet been identified.

Tervela Inc., a New York provider of appliance-based messaging technology, has raised $20.2 million in Series C funding. Backers include Goldman Sachs, North Hill Ventures and Sigma Partners.

Lilliputian Systems Inc., a Wilmington, Mass.-based developer of fuel cells for wireless electronic devices, has raised just over $20 million in Series C funding. DAG Ventures was joined by return backers Atlas Venture, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Rockport Capital Partners. The company had raised around $30 million in a Series C round two years ago, so this appears to be an addition. Today’s snowstorm has made it hard to get Boston-area folks on the phone (but calls are out).

Cempra Pharmaceuticals Inc., a Morrisville, N.C.-based developer of anti-infectives, has raised $10 million in Series B funding. Backers include Aisling Capital, Intersouth Partners, Optimer Pharmaceuticals Inc. and banker I. Wistar Morris III.

Oblong Industries Inc., a Los Angeles-based gesture recognition startup, has raised around $8.8 million in Series A funding led by Foundry Group. Brad Feld and Ryan McIntyre of Foundry have taken board seats.

Arcion Therapeutics Inc., a Lutherville, Md.-based drug company focused on pain management, has raised $8.85 million in Series A funding. Backers include InterWest Partners and CMEA Ventures.

Modiv Media Inc., a Quincy, Mass.-based provider of software that enables consumers to make purchases via mobile phone at participating merchants, has raised $8 million in Series A funding. Backers include Ignition Partners, Oak Investment Partners and SeaPoint Ventures.

uiActive Inc., an Australian provider of network-based mobile phone software, has raised US$3.33 million in Series A-1 funding. Backers include Southern Cross Ventures and CM Capital.

NanoTune Technologies Corp. has raised around $3.12 million in Series A funding led by Draper Fisher Jurvetson. The Mountain View, Calif.-based company says that it is “capable of precisely nanotuning and reproducing crucial silica based nanomaterials and smart devices to be used in a multitude of markets.”

SocialPicks Inc., a Mountain View, Calif.-based online community for stock market investors, has raised around $500,000 in Series A funding led by Bay Partners, according to a regulatory filing.
