Rapportive, a gmail add-on which adds additional information in a side-bar format, was acquired today by LinkedIn. While AllThingsDigital lists Dave McClure and Shervin Pishevar as some of its business angel investors, they left off Xavier Niel’s Kima Ventures, which also played a not-so-insignificant role. According to Jeremy Berrebi, Kima Ventures was made the “biggest angel” investment into Rapportive. This is great news for Kima Ventures, who’s investment strategy has resembled more dropping a grenade into a barrel of fish than anything else.

Hopefully we will be seeing more success stories for Kima Ventures in the months to come.
