AHAlife Nabs $6 Million, Adds New Board Members
AHAlife.com in New York says it raised $6 million in a financing round led by venture firm DCM, according to a press release. AHAlife.com is an e-commerce site for purchasing hard-to-find lifestyle products curated by so-called tastemakers that include fashion designer Donna Karan, filmmaker (and famously protective wife) Wendi Murdoch, and chef Daniel Boulud. FirstMark Capital participated in the latest funding round, following its investment in a March 2010 round of $3 million for AHAlife.com. DCM co-founder David Chao, Gen Isayama, general partner with DCM, and Taek Kwon, managing member of Toro Investment Partners, joined AHAlife.com’s board of directors following the latest round.
