SB Nation Raises 7 figures in Venture Funding With Some Impressive Names

Joe M.Contributor IOctober 29, 2008

Tyler Bleszinski has come a long way since starting Athletics Nation.  He is president of SB Nation which just received 7 figures in funding which Jim Bankoff, former AOL programming chief, was able to pull off.  For those of you who are not familiar with SB Nation, you can read about it here in our SB Nation interview with Tyler Bleszinski.  Not bad for a guy who started with an A’s Blog.

The Round of financing was led by Accel Partners.  Additional funding came from Allen & Co., Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Capitols, Brent Jones, former San Francisco 49ers player and now managing director of private equity firm Northgate Capital, Dan Rosensweig and Jeff Weiner.
