A blurb about Blurb - $2.5M financing from Hercules

Blurb, one of our favorite creative book publisher, secured a $2.5M financing from Hercules Technology Growth Capital.

Blurb is funded in parts by by Canaan Partners and Anthem Venture Partners and is making inroads in to the areas of self publishing and print on demand needs. The $2.5M infusion is in the form of debt financing.

Hercules Technology Growth Capital, is a NASDAQ traded specialty finance company providing debt and equity growth capital to technology-related companies, particularly for companies backed by venture capital and private equity firms that have already raised significant venture capital.

The print on demand and self publishing market continues to grow. Other important players in this space are Lulu, iUniverse, Xlibiris. Even Amazon acquired BookSurge in 2005 to tap in to this market.

    I love Blurb, they are the best for color prints.

    Self publishing and print on demand publishers have everything but the marketing part figured out. Hopefully new google books project will help there.
