Livescribe Joins the $100M Venture-Backed Club

By Connie Loizos — 5 years ago

You wouldn’t know the IPO market remains so sluggish — not by the new $39 million Series C just closed by Livescribe, the Oakland-based maker of two so-called smartpens, the Echo and Pulse. The round — led by Crosslink Capital, with participation from Scale Venture Partners, Qualcomm, TransLink Capital, Presidio Ventures, Keating Capital and existing investors VantagePoint Venture Partners, Lionhart, and Aeris Capital – not only enticed an almost ridiculous number of investors; it brings the company’s total funding to a stunning $100 million. Livescribe is just three years old.
