A bunch of money changed hands this week, and here’s some of what went down:
- According to the investment database CB Insights, the 25 largest tech investments of 2014 amounted to $9.25 billion in total (SF Gate).
- The ephemeral-messaging app maker Snapchat disclosed that it had raised $485.6 million just before the end of the year in a last-minute filing that didn’t name any investors (Bloomberg).
- The grocery delivery startup Instacart nabbed a $220 million investment from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, putting the company’s value at around $2 billion. Six months ago, an Andreessen Horowitz-led investment of $44 million put Instacart’s value at about $400 million.
- Vuzix received a $24.8 million investment from Intel, in a deal that effectively gives Intel a 30 percent stake in the Rochester, N.Y.-based smart-glasses maker (Reuters).
- Scribd, a document sharing service, raised $22 million in a funding round led by Khosla Ventures. The company says the money will go to expanding its subscription e-book service (Mashable).
- Beepi, an online used car marketplace, scored $12 million from Yuri Milner, Scott Bommer and about 80 AngelList investors. This investment is in addition to the $60 million in Series B money the company announced back in October.
- The Seattle-based survey technology startup TinyPulse raised $3.5 million in new funding. This marks the company’s first outside investment (VentureBeat).
