Video Site HealthiNation Raises $7.5 Million Second Round, Strikes Syndication Deals

Online video network HealthiNation has raised $7.5 million in a second round of funding led by *Intel Capital* and existing backer MK Capital. The New York-based company plans to use the proceeds for general expansion plans, CEO Raj Amin told paidContent. The company secured a first round of $4.2 million in September 2006, he added.

The funding comes as HealthiNation has laid the groundwork for a handful of new partnerships it’s announcing in conjunction with its new investment. The company has struck deals to run its videos — which cover roughly three dozen areas including sleep apnea, diabetes and cholesterol — on the online properties belonging to newspaper publisher *Lee Enterprises* and Parade magazine, as well as’s, women’s health site and self-help focused Guideposts Magazine. Two-year-old HealthiNation has existing deals with *Yahoo* and **, and it also runs a VOD channel on the *Comcast*, *Verizon*, Cox and *Charter* systems.
