Zazzle in possible $30M funding round

Zazzle, the online marketplace for personalized products, may be close to securing funding of $30M from a hedge fund investor. This was reported on Friday last on Techcrunch.

No official statement has, as yet, been issued by Zazzle regarding any investment.  If true, it would continue a remarkable run of success for Zazzle in attracting high profile investments.  In 2005, it secured funding of $16M from John Doerr and Ram Shiram, venture capitalists with Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Sherpalo Ventures respectively.  Doerr and Shiram were early investors in Google.
