We’ve been covering video-sharing app Viddy regularly in the last year: it was used by some music-artist early adopters in 2011, before exploding in popularity this year. Now the company has announced a new $30m funding round, with NEA, Goldman Sachs, Khosla Ventures, and Battery Ventures all chipping in. The round came as Viddy passed 27m registered users, with 500k more being added every day thanks to buzz around the ‘Instagram for video’. “We have a big vision, big ambitions,” says CEO Brett O’Brien. “Our goal is to entertain and connect people around the world through mobile.
