Start-up Pixazza has raised $5.75 million in a first round that includes investors August Capital, CMEA Ventures, Foundation Capital and Google (NSDQ: GOOG), according to peHub. Angel investors include Ron Conway, former *eBay* COO Maynard Webb, and Facebook CFO Gideon Yu. Founded in 2008, Pixazza distributes images to publishers that include products people can purchase by clicking on the product within the image then purchasing it at the product's website. Pixazza then splits its commission from the sale with its publishing partners. Pixazza is headed by former Netscape execs Bob Lisbonne and James Everingham.
