docstoc got a nice round of funding
My Review: 9
A buddy I went to college with and was in AEPi with named Jason Nazar is the CEO of docstoc. He just closed a $3.25 million B round from Rustic Canyon Capitol. I saw the update via Twitterific from Michael Arrington, and then read Jason Kincaid’s full article on Techcrunch.
I’ve used docstoc a couple of times to find templates for various documents (I think I got a NDA off of there once.) I’ve also uploaded some docs, including a really nice expense reporting template. The service has worked perfectly well for me in that regard. I’ve never had a need to embed a flash document before, but who knows what excitement the future may hold.
I don’t have a whole lot to add to TC’s article, other than my personal relationship. I reconnected with Jason last week at the Web 2.0 expo in San Francisco, and this is a great, exciting follow up. Jason is a buddy and a brother (Nazar, not Kincaid. I’m sure Jason Kincaid is a lovely guy, I just haven’t met him yet) and I’m thrilled for his success and wish him and the rest of the docstoc team the very best of luck. A solid 9 for them, and my heartfelt good wishes.
One note: Jason, I do think you guys should update your blog and announce the news officially, take that tiger by the tail.
