Money Pours Into How-to Sites

February 11, 2008 11:09 AM

Today I wrote about the rising popularity of how-to video sites on the Web, a story you can find here.

It turns out great minds think alike. Will Richmond of VideoNuze also wrote about the growth in this area of Web video.

His story includes a nice roll call of who’s backing who and how much money they have poured in. You can check it out at his site, and here’s a recap. Thanks, Will!

VideoJug: $30 million
HowCast: $8 million from Tudor
5Min.com: $5 million from Spark Capital
WonderHowTo.com: undisclosed amount from General Catalyst
