Round the Clock Acquisitions

After playing around with the titles of this kind of articles, I think I could stick with what I ‘m using today. It simply encompasses the market and industry of the web today, until I whip up something better.

After last friday’s lack of feeds, PEHub is on a roll with announcements. Of course, TechCrunch and Mashable are always welcome.

JoMaJa Inc., a San Francisco-based online marketplace, has raised $3.2 million in Series A funding led by Catamount Ventures, according to a regulatory filing. The company is founded by three former executives of StepUp Commerce, which was acquired by Intuit. One of them, Adam Jackson, has a LinkedIn profile that indicates the company will focus on the automotive space.

Takkle Inc., a New York-based online social network for high school sports, has raised nearly $7 million in Series A-1 funding, according to a regulatory filing. Liberty Associated Partners was joined by return backers WMG Investments and Greycroft Partners. No word on whether this is completely new money, or just an add-on to a $5 million Series A round it raised last year.

DGP Labs Inc., a New York-based Internet startup, has secured $4.75 million of a $5.25 million Series A round, according to a regulatory filing. Backers include Bessemer Venture Partners and General Catalyst Partners, with Rob Stavis of Bessemer and Hemant Taneja joining the DGP board of directors. No word yet on what the company actually does.

AmeriTV, a New York-based Internet television company founded in 2004, has raised $45 million in venture capital funding. First Mutual Credit and GTrade Securities co-led the deal, and were joined by four other undisclosed backers.

Wellocities, the Canada-based health site, has raised $1 million in seed investment from XDL Capital Group, which has also incubated the site for the past year.
