So it’s been a month since I heard that Igglo.fi took $12.5m from Benchmark Europe to expand into the UK, but no-one seems to be talking about this deal.
Considering how significant it is in the context of buzzwords (vertical search, web 2.0, social media) as well as being a really significant market (average london estate agent commissions £8,000; market size in the billions; high streets full of expensive and unloved estate agents), that is surprising.
Are our tech journalists asleep at the wheel?
I just nudged Mike Butcher into writing about it, so maybe we’ll hear about the deal soon.
P.S. I have an interesting non-start-up funding post coming up soon. Stay patient!
