Fetch Finds $934K Funding

7/2/10

[Corrected, 7/5/10 at 4:55 pm Eastern time] Fetch Industries, the Portland, ME-based operator of a website called FetchDog.com for dog owners, has raised $933,900 of a planned $1.5 million round of equity financing, according to an SEC filing. David Shaw, a company co-founder, did not immediately reply to an e-mail seeking comment on the deal today. The actress Glenn Close has a celebrity blog that chronicles life with pets on FetchDog.com, and the website specializes in online sales of high-end dog supplies. The company raised $4 million in a round of financing last year led by Borealis Ventures and Harbor Light Capital Partners. [Editor's note: The amount of this financing, though correct in the original headline, was misstated in the body of this story as $933.9 million. The correct amount, as stated in the headline, is $933,900.]

    So happy to see this Maine company getting institutional capital. There are so many interesting consumer and technology startups in the Portland area…if I were a VC I would so much rather take a board seat at a company on the Maine coast than in Waltham or New York. Portland punches way above its weight in just about every dimension–it won’t be a well-kept secret for very long.
