Demand Media Raises Another $35 Million; Total Comes To $355 Million


Demand Media, the Santa Monica-based social and domain name media firm, has raised another $35 million in its fourth round of funding, according to SEC filings picked up by PEHub. The company recently bought social media tools firm Pluck, for about $67 million, as we reported earlier this month.

Demand raised $100 million for the fourth round last year and this is new money into the round. For the $100 million, investors included Goldman Sachs, 3i Group, Generation Partners, Oak Investment Partners and Spectrum Equity Investors. No word on who invested in this $35 million raise.

The company has now raised $355 million since being launched in March 2006, including earlier rounds of $120 million and $100 million. It was founded by CEO Richard Rosenblatt, former head of MySpace parent company Intermix Media.

thanks for the feedback.


Are these guys kidding? Are they trying to break records for most money raised? Wow! What do they do again:)

BTW — the Alacra stuff looks odd and out of place on your site. Their idea isn't going to fly.
