Canadian online news daily The Mark News has closed a round of funding, led by Innovation Grade Capital, Thunder Road Capital, and Arlene Dickinson, CEO of Venture Communications and co-host of CBC’s The Dragon’s Den. The amount was not disclosed. The Mark bills itself as a “smarter, Canadian version of the Huffington Post,” which I’m sure HuffPo is thrilled by. It has news and commentary from about 600 contributors, focusing in politics, business, science, technology, sports and arts. The money will be used to add “hundreds of new contributors, expand our multimedia offering, launch a French version, and sign revenue and content distribution partnerships.” More details in release.
