–For Immediate Release–
AppSumo is excited to announce that it has closed an angel round of funding from a Top Angel. The Austin based startup has seen bullish growth over the last fiscal year, acquiring nearly 100,000 customers and achieving sub 5000 US Alexa rank. Today the company is excited to announce a staggering investment of $20.47 from Chief Sumo Noah Kagan’s mom Debra.
Angel making big deals!
Chief Sumo was quoted as saying,
“This money is a real windfall for the organization. We plan on making stategic investments in shrimp tacos at Maria’s Taco Express, and divesting in Diet Sprites for two lucky members of the team.”
Other plans with the capital include eliminating company debt by repaying Eric for that money he loaned Noah to buy 1 Justin Bieber ticket.
The investment was made through the purchase of a competitive daily deal featured on AppSumo.com, which has actually promoted other successful companies like LinkedIn, Heroku, Evernote and more.
Debra “Angel Cakes”, tweeted from her Palm Pilot during the commercial break of Days of our Lives – “Id B a fool not 2 put money in @appsumo b4 valuations get out of control–Bsides Noah can use the money 4 fresh undies #tigerblood.”
Unfortunately after Paypal fees and a taco dinner consumed with the Angel investor, Noah and his team are only left with $8.67 to spearhead growth in the company.
Appsumo can help you get new customers, grow your company, and give you an introduction to Angel. The future is bright.
