Catch: $2.3 million
June 2, 2010: Steve Brown’s startup Snaptic received $2.3 million in seed funding from Excel Venture Management. Snaptic offers the 3Banana app for iPhone and Android device users. The app is a general note taking app, but Brown said the interest among investors was because of the app’s ability to more easily enable users to record and keep information on their fitness, diet and health. Brown founded, built and sold the Health Hero Network.
