WonderHill announces funding from CRV and Shasta

We finally announced WonderHill,  our social casual games company!   And we announced that Saar Gur, of Charles River Ventures, and Tod Francis of Shasta Ventures, invested a total of $7 million in the company.  Those guys are truly great, and we are very lucky to have them as investors.  Get to them if you can!  Here’s the WonderHill preview site.  Here is some of the press:

We also announced that Nick Rush joined WonderHill as Chief Creative Officer.  He is the former Chief Creative Officer at Pogo, and the former VP Product at iWin.  But that doesn’t really tell the story about Nick.  He’s just a fantastic person to work with.  Humble, clear, driven to quality, and he makes us laugh a lot.  I wish I were me — to get to go to work everyday with these guys and have investors like this!
