Evernote Gets $5 Million Second Round For Web Clip Service

This story was written by Robert Andrews.
Evernote, a web- and app-based personal info storage service, has raised a $5 million second funding round from Russia's Troika Partners. The product, which works across Windows, Mac, the web and mobile, lets people clip bits of web text to save as a searchable collection of notes for later perusal. There's a $5-a-month premium version. Evernote has handwriting recognition and sharing features. Evernote scored a $6 million first round from individuals in August 2006, when Esther Dyson and PayPal co-founder Max Levchin joined the board, but this round comes from the still-booming Russia. Troika also invested $5 million each in 3D games outfit iZ3D and 3D software maker ParallelGraphics. From RBC Daily via Quintura.
