In March, we learned that TheSkimm was raising a cool $12 million, thanks to an investment from Google Ventures. The popular email newsletter has now closed its Series C round and tacked on a few notable, albeit atypical, investors—Shonda Rhimes and Tyra Banks.
In fact, the round boasts a majority of female investors, from journalist Willow Bay to VCs like Jesse Draper, Linnea Roberts, and Hope Taitz. The new funding will go toward hiring across product and data analytics, TheSkimm told Variety, as well as doubling down on the company’s “No Excuses” campaign, which reportedly registered 110,000 voters before the 2016 election.

The company wouldn’t offer details on how its shiny new investors and cash pile—now $29 million in total—might play into its production business, but for now, I’d suggest keeping an eye on Netflix.

In wake of Anon-IB’s closure, TNW talked to Holten… This story continues at The Next Web
