Wikio Raises $5.3M

Luxembourg-based Wikio, Europe’s best hope against Digg, Google News and Technorati (it is sort of a mashup of all three), has closed a €4 million ($5.3 million) Series A round of financing. This follows a previous angel round of financing of an undisclosed size (investors in that round included as Loic Le Meur, Martin Varsavsky, Freddy Mini, Ouriel Ohayon, and Jeff Clavier). The financing round was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners along with Gemini Israel Funds.
