My New Startup: Namo Media

You may have been wondering what I've been up to since we sold DrawChat late last year.

The answer may not surprise you: I've been working on a new startup, Namo Media. I've teamed up with some fellow ex-Googlers, Nassar Stoertz and Tural Badirkhanli to work on a new solution for mobile advertising that's less disruptive and more elegant than those pesky banner ads you see today.

Today we're announcing our seed round, $1.875M in total from Google Ventures, Betaworks, Andreessen Horowitz, Trinity Ventures, along with some amazing angels: Kevin Scott, Seth Berman, Chung-Man Tam, Keith Coleman, Garrick Toubassi, Tikhon Bernstam, Michael Levit, Benjamin Ling, and Paul Buchheit.
