Posted Oct 23, 2008

Apparently SAP, Goldman Sachs, Bessemer Venture Partners, and McGraw Hill believe that relationships DO matter.  Or at least back in June they did.  The four companies invested $22.7 million on top of the $53 million LinkedIn received this past June.  The total $75.7 million Series D investment is based on a $1 billion valuation.   

To date, LinkedIn has raised over $100 million for their professional social network service.  LinkedIn has about 370 employees and their revenues are growing 100% per year.  LinkedIn CEO Dan Nye informed TechCrunch that the company has been profitable since 2006.  

LinkedIn has about 30 million registered users.  LinkedIn receives over 4 million uniques per month.  The previous investors of the $53 million were Bain Capital Ventures, Sequoia Capital, Greylock Partners and Bessemer Venture Partners.
