Seeking Alpha Raises $7 Million Second Round

Interesting news from Seeking Alpha: the financial commentary and info site has raised $7 million in a second round led by new investor DAG Ventures with “full participation” from existing investors Benchmark & Accel. In an e-mail, Founder and CEO David Jackson said the funds would provide “a strong capital base to support our innovation and growth plans for the coming years.” We’ve asked Seeking Alpha for more information on their earlier funding and will update. Founded in 2004, Seeking Alpha describes itself as “the premier website for actionable stock market opinion and analysis, and vibrant, intelligent finance discussion.” It claims more than 3,200 contributors and 4 million monthly uniques (based on internal stats using Google (NSDQ: GOOG) Analytics).
