Let’s  just assume that time factors are at play. The first quarter is closing, Mondays generally suck and the US economy is slumped.  Still good news hangs and startups are still working their butts off for that ill-needed funding.

Here’s today’s roundup. 


RiverWired, a social network for the green-minded amongst us, has received $1.5 million in angel funds from undisclosed investors.  RiverWired is a site dedicated to eco-friendly information with a social networking aspect to it.

Cenzic, a company which offers its clients testing and assessments on Web application security, has announced having reached two-thirds its goal in its latest round (Series D) of funding, according to PEHub. It seeks a total of $15m in investments. Cenzic has been a privately-listed, VC-funded services-oriented entity since 2001.

GizMoz, provider of fun technology that can turn your 2D image and recorded voice into a talking 3D character, is growing up and moving into the Asian market. The Israeli company, which we first covered in December 2006, has raised $6.5M in Series B financing from a round led by DoCoMo Capital, a subsidiary of the largest cell phone operator in Japan.

Interactive advertising company WebVisible has received 12 million dollars in its second round of funding.
