ThisNext Gets $1.2M In Funding Round

Santa Monica-based ThisNext, the online social shopping and product discovery site now being run by Matt Edelman, has raised $1.2M in a round of funding, according to a regulatory filing from the firm today. According to the filing, the first investment in the round was August 4th, and included equity, options, and warrants. It's unclear if the funding in this regulatory filing is the same funding as the firm announced on July 21st, from Gary Winnick (Pacific Capital), Bob Pittman (Pilot Group/AOL), Stan Shuman (Allen & Co.), Clearstone Venture Partners and Anthem Venture Partners. (Update: Edelman says this is the same funding as announced on July 21st. The firm had not announced an amount with that funding announcement.) More information »
