The Official Plizy Tumblr

Plizy’s vision has always been big….bigger than what you see today on Plizy for iPad and Plizy for Web. Building great products requires passionate people and time, which is why we’re so happy to announce that Altas Venture has invested in Plizy to the tune of $4 million in a series A round. Numbers aside, continuing to deliver amazing products to you is the most important outcome of today’s announcement. Funding is the fuel that makes ambitious ideas possible. We’re looking forward to integrating new providers for even more content to add to Plizy so you’ll always have something to watch. I’m also thrilled to welcome David Marcus, President of PayPal who will join Plizy’s board of directors alongside Fred Destin, partner in the technology group at Atlas Venture. Both bring deep experience in web services and consumer facing innovation. I’ve known Fred for many years and we’ve built a strong mutual respect so I’m thrilled we’re able to work on Plizy together. David is a mentor and longtime friend of Plizy and his tremendous experience will help us build our vision. I’m thrilled that we now have the resources to build a world class product that will make our vision a reality.
