This week included some notable acquisitions and at least one giant funding round. Gaming hardware and accessories startup Razer raked in a whopping $50 million for the new year. Other notable funding announcements included Appconomy’s $10 million Series A, and Eventasaurus’s Angel round—notable because the company has perhaps the best name of any new startup this year.
StartUp Beat featured Q&As with Own Point of Sale—which recently raised a $1.2 million Seed round—and coupon and deals aggregator CouponCabin; and Featured Startup Pitches from social platform for beta testing BetaBeat and foodservice social media loyalty platform ServisTree.
