Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Starting a company can be a long, hard slog, with many opportunities to quit along the way. But as Mobile Posse founder Jon Jackson discovered, sometimes persistence pays off.
Jackson last week raised a $5 million Series C round to continue his company’s new strategy of using idle mobile phone screens to deliver ads and information to users.
The funding was led by a new investor, Harbert Venture Partners, and included current investors Softbank Capital, Court Square Ventures and Columbia Capital. It builds on the $2.5 million insider round from those current investors that allowed Jackson to start the shift 28 months ago.
