What follows is a set of VC funding items culled from recent Regulation D filings with the SEC. None of these deals has been otherwise announced:
ClearEdge Power, a Hillsboro, Ore.-based fuel cell develops, has secured around $6.47 million of a $19.47 million Series C round. The only listed backer is existing shareholder Applied Ventures. www.clearedgepower.com
Media Machines Inc. has raised around $9.4 million in Series A funding led by Mohr, Davidow Ventures. The San Francisco-based company makes tools for 3D virtual world-making and content creation. www.mediamachines.com
ReShape Medical Inc., a Lake Forest, Calif.-based developer of a medical device to help treat obesity, has raised $3 million in follow-on Series A funding. Return backers include New Leaf Venture Partners and SV Life Sciences. The company previously was known as Abdominis Inc., and has now raised a total of around $8 million.
Rocketon Inc., a San Francisco-based MMO game developer, has secured $500,000 of an $800,000 Series A round from Bertram Ventures (personal vehicle of Jeff Drazen). The company’s website uses pseudonyms for its executives, but here is some decoding: Captain Hoff, chief executive, is Steve Hoffman (vice chairman of the San Francisco Chapter of the Producers Guild of America). Gnome, chief operating officer, is Naomi Kotubo, a former development director with Electronic Arts. Tarzan, a board member and lead investor, is Drazen. www.rocketon.com
RollStream Inc., a Fairfax, Md.-based provider of business community management software, has secured $1.5 million of a $2 million Series A-1 round led by Grotech Capital Group. www.rollstream.com
Sierra Nevada Solar Inc., a Sacramento, Calif.-based solar energy startup, has raised $4.5 million in Series A funding. No investor information was disclosed.
Spatial Photonics Inc., a Sunnyvale, Calif.-based microdisplay maker, has raised around $26 million in Series B funding. Khosla Ventures was joined by return backers Intel Capital and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. DAG Ventures also seems to have participated, given the addition of DAG’s John Cadeddu to the Spatial Photonics board of directors. No one at the company picked up the phone, when I called earlier today. www.sp-incorp.com
Spectrum K12 School Solutions Inc., a Towson, Md.-based provider of special education and IEP management software, has raised $5.7 million in Series B-1 funding.
