Scribble gets financing from investment group

A group of investors led by Georgian Partners is sinking $8 million into Toronto-based social media company Scribble Technologies Inc.

Scribble’s list of customers includes media companies like CBC, Canadian Press, Associated Press and Reuters, along with corporate clients including Rogers and Samsung.

Georgian Partners – which specializes in funding expansion stage software, Internet and information companies – is leading a Scribble investment group that includes Summerhill Venture Partners, Rogers Venture Partners and Export Development Canada.

Georgian’s portfolio includes investments in a number of new media and e-commerce companies, including app developer Polar Mobile, cloud analytics company Razorsight, online retail platform Shopify and and fraud prevention and digital media company 41st Parameter.
