Livescribe Inc. (www.livescribe.com) announced today that it has secured $10.175 million of additional financing through an internal round led by Lionhart Investments Ltd. and Vantage Point Venture Partners.
““Despite a difficult economic and funding environment, we’re pleased to have such strong backing from the investment community,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Jim Marggraff, founder and CEO, Livescribe, Inc. ““Already a ““must-haveÃ¢â‚¬Â product for thousands of students, doctors, lawyers, consultants, sales people, journalists, managers, engineers, and teachers, we are actively expanding the Livescribe platform in 2009, most notably with the launch of our application store in the second half of this year.Ã¢â‚¬Â
