Rapportive acquired by LinkedIn – Score one for Kima Ventures!

Finance

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.
