o Menlo Park-Based Bullpen Capital Closes New $75 Million Fund

Menlo Park, Calif. -- Bullpen Capital, a Menlo Park-based venture capital firm focused on tech startups between seed and Series A rounds, said on Friday it has closed a new $75 million investment fund, the third since its inception in 2010. The fund, known as Bullpen III, included participation from Greenspring Associates, Venture Investment Associates (VIA), Oberlin College and other institutional and individual investors. "Bullpen seeks out startups that have excellent early operating metrics but that are frequently overlooked by the rest of the venture ecosystem," said Paul Martino, a general partner. "Many Bullpen companies are in under-invested categories and geographies or have founders with unusual backgrounds." Bullpen has invested in more than 50 companies, including Fanduel, Ipsy, SpotHero, Namely, Classy and AirMap.

o San Jose-Based ServiceAide Lands $12 Million in New Funding Round

San Jose, Calif. -- ServiceAide, a San Jose-based provider of web-based IT service management tools, said on Tuesday it has raised $12 million in a new round of funding, led by Arrowroot Capital. The company said it will sue the proceeds to bolster its sales, marketing and product development efforts. "The investment will accelerate our roadmap and support us in achieving our goal of turning the recording of who, what, when and how into a proactive optimal blend of suggestions and decision support," said CEO Wai Wong. The news comes less than two months after ServiceAide acquired IT service management software from CA Technologies.

o Palo Alto-Based Sysorex Completes Deal for Integrio Technologies

Palo Alto, Calif. -- Sysorex, a Palo Alto-based developer of analytics software, said on Tuesday it has completed its deal to acquire certain assets of Virginia-based Integrio Technologies, a provider of IT integration and engineering services to local, state and federal agencies. The company paid $1.8 million in cash and 530,000 shares of stock, and will assume approximately $3 million in Integrio's debt. The value of the deal could rise by as much as $1.2 million, depending on the company's performance over the next three years. Integrio, which has approximately 40 employees, focuses on network performance, secure wireless infrastructure, software application lifecycle support and physical cyber security. "This acquisition is a vital piece of our overall strategy to strengthen our government relationships and open opportunities to introduce security and intelligence solutions," said Sysorex CEO Nadir Ali.

o San Francisco-Based Zipongo Acquires FillMyFork

San Francisco -- Zipongo, the San Francisco-based developer of a digital nutrition platform, said on Tuesday it has acquired the team and assets of FillMyFork, a San Francisco-based provider of healthy cooking recommendations, nutrition rewards, tracking of grocery purchases and related analytics. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Zipongo said the acquisition will help it expand its Food Benefits Management offering to health plans, employers and health systems. Founded in 2014 by Arun Nijhawan and Kartik Shastri, FillMyFork awards users incentive "points" for healthy food choices at the grocery store and removes points for unhealthy choices. Points can be converted into gift cards for Whole Foods, Starbucks or other retailers. "The FillMyFork team pushed the boundaries on passive tracking of food buying, and rewarding healthy food purchases," said Zipongo CEO Jason Langheier. "Kartik and Arun bring a strong focus on the science of effective product development, and knowledge of the food and nutrition data that underlies the healthy cooking utility tools we are continuously evolving."

o Cyber Monday Smashes Single-Day Online Sales Record

San Jose, Calif. -- Cyber Monday generated an estimated $3.39 billion in online sales, smashing the all-time single-day sales record, according to new figures from San Jose-based Adobe. The figure was up 10% from Cyber Monday in 2015, and surpassed this year's Black Friday by about $50 million. "Cyber Monday is on track to be the biggest online shopping day ever, surpassing our forecast by almost $27 million or 0.8%," said Tamara Gaffney, principal analyst at Adobe Digital Insights. "This indicates that consumers still had more appetite for online shopping despite the incredible volume of online sales on Black Friday. Prices are expected to start climbing after today as retailers shift attention to extend the season late into December with quick shipping deals and the option to click and collect in store." Adobe said it generates the figures by measuring 80% of all online transactions from the top 100 U.S. retailers, then uses a predictive model to fill in the blanks.

o Thanksgiving and Black Friday Post Strong E-Commerce Gains

Reston, Va. -- Americans spent significantly more online this year on both Thanksgiving and Black Friday, according to new figures from digital audience measurement firm comScore. Thanksgiving Day saw a 17% increase in retail e-commerce spending to $1.29 billion, surpassing the $1 billion mark for the third straight year. Black Friday followed with an even stronger spending day, with $1.97 billion in desktop online sales, up 19% from Black Friday 2015. "After a slower start to the holiday season than initially anticipated, Thanksgiving and Black Friday both posted strong online spending totals well above $1 billion on desktop computers and grew at impressive rates that pushed season-to-date growth to 12%," said CEO Gian Fulgoni. "Thanksgiving has now established itself as one of the more important online buying days of the holiday season, while Black Friday also continues to gain in importance online -- this year becoming the third biggest online desktop spending day of all-time after Cyber Monday 2015 and 2014." comScore expects Cyber Monday 2016 to surpass $2.5 billion in desktop spending and $1 billion on mobile commerce to become the leading online spending day for the seventh straight year.

o Co-Founder Donna Harris Stepping Down as Co-CEO of 1776

San Francisco -- Co-founder Donna Harris she will step down as the co-CEO of startup accelerator and seed fund 1776, which has West Coast offices in San Francisco. Harris, who co-founded the Washington, DC-based firm four years ago with Evan Burfield, said she plans to pursue opportunities related to the nation's shift from an industrial to a digital economy, and the scores of economic and societal issues related to that. "We need to be having some very difficult, intellectually honest conversations about the future of our economy," Harris wrote in a blog post. "Yes, startups are critical for creating new jobs to replace those being lost. But the challenge is far greater than that, and that is where I now want to turn my attention." Harris will officially step down from her role at the end of January, but stay on as a board member and partner in the firm's fund. Burfield will become the sole CEO of 1776.
