Mevio, a video website that was founded by Ron Bloom and Adam Curry started the company originally to podcast. About 4 years later, the founders decided to rename their former company, Podshow to Mevio. Mevio hosts original videos and will allow others to syndicate their content.
This idea impressed Crosslink Capital, Sequoia Capital, Kleiner Perkins, DAG Ventures, and Sherpalo Ventures because these companies gave Mevio $15 million in Series C. All of these VC firms were previous investors as well. To date, Mevio has raised about $38 million.
Some of Mevio’s clients include Coca-Cola, Anheuser Busch, and Hewlett Packard. Mevio has over 1 million hours of video content. Mevio also self-proclaims themselves as a leading site to discover new artists and free use licensing for original music.
