John Cook breaks the news that my friend Dave Schappell has closed the series A for his startup – TeachStreet. TeachStreet is building a directory of teachers and classes for instruction from lessons, classes to private tutors. Dave is a total rockstar and I can’t imagine him not being successful so I am glad I publicly congratulate he and the rest of the TeachStreet team on the round. I expect great things out of them and front what I’ve seen visiting their office semi-regularly I don’t think I’ll be disappointed.
It’s been a good year so far for my friends with this being the second VC series A (blist earlier closed their series A) to close. And to follow on a previous post – both Dave and Kevin (of blist) fit the in-demand experienced entrepreneur profile – nice to see my generation doing well.
