Vanilla Forums raises $500K in Series A

It’s interesting to see them as “Montreal-based”, that means my friend John Stokes is doing something right… congrats to the Vanilla crew!

Montreal-based open source communtiy forum Vanilla Forums announced today that they have raised a $500K Series A round led by Montreal Startup, with participation by eonBusiness, Norseman Capital and Klein Venture Partners.

The former TechStars summer 2009 company will use the funds to expand its marketing, development, and sales efforts.

Vanilla co-founder Mark O’Sullivan shares how they went from TechStars to funded in less than six months on their blog today and the entire post is worth a read
