Synthasite raises $5m in funding

I’m proud to announce that Synthasite has raised $5m from Swiss based, Columbus Venture Capital. The official press release is located here. This healthy injection of capital will allow us to grow very quickly next year, and release lots of new functionality and features.

We’re also planning to extend the templates and widget libraries considerably – right now, we’re a small team of engineers so it’s difficult to do everything that we have planned, but we’re going to skill up very quickly and the good news is that we’re now looking to setup a Silicon Valley office, and are looking for high class individuals to join us! Check out our Careers page to get an idea of the roles that we currently have available, and we’ll be announcing more roles as soon as we have defined them!

It’s an exciting time for us – thanks to all our users who have provided valuable feedback during the Beta and we look very forward to taking Synthasite to the next level!

    You could start by explaining the features of the product on your homepage, adding screenshots, a live demo, etc. I’m sure you haven’t lost sight of the fact that the purpose of the business is to sell a product, and no-one will buy it if they don’t know what they’re buying.

    Why is there no calendar navigation on the blog?

    Hi there Vinny,
    Thank you ever so much for this facility. I am busy constructing my web page today, and will pass it on to all my friends. As soon as you are through the Beta phase, I will subscribe to the service.

  • I am overwhelmed at this opportunity to build a web site that is telling my story. In a matter of days my website has opened doors in major ways. I am excited about what is happening in my life, with my vision and want to know how I can go further and circulate my site. How can someone log on type in soberliving and find my site.

    Thank You
