OnSwipe Raises $1 Million

Posted Jan 13, 2011

OnSwipe is a company that developed a WordPress plugin called PadPressed. PadPressed makes WordPress blogs look like a native application on tablets. OnSwipe has raised $1 million in seed funding.

This round of funding was led by Spark Capital, Betaworks, and ENIAC Ventures. Angel investors Dharmesh Shah, Jennifer Lum, Roy Rodenstein, and Wayne Chang also participated in this round. OnSwipe founder Jason Baptiste said he wants to use the recent funding to expand the platform to other content management systems like Moveable Type.

“We can rethink the way publishing is done, specifically because of the iPad. And if we can make the content look good then we can actually make the ads look good. People will actually enjoy ads for the first time ever,? stated Baptiste.
