ShipHawk Scores $5M For Shipping Marketplace

Santa Barbara-based ShipHawk, the online developer of technology for helping connect users with shipping companies, has raised $5M in a funding round, the company said this morning. The startup, led by Jeremy Bodenhamer, said the funding came from DN Capital, and also included Karlin Ventures, Rothenberg Ventures, and Wavemaker Partners (formerly Siemer Ventures). DN Capital's Steve Schlenker also joins the company's board. ShipHawk said the funding goes towards the creation of an API, which will allow e-commerce sites, marketplaces, online auction sites, and small businesses to plug into its service, which enables packing and shipping of any kind of item.
