  1. Venture Voice: VV Show #7 - Evan Williams of Odeo

    A quick glance at Evan’s bio might make it seem as though he just stumbles into all the newest, hottest trends. However, the only thing Ev stumbled into was traffic (the kind you get on the non-information highway — where he discovered the value of listening to podcasts) on his commute. After trying his hand in Nebraska’s tech entrepreneurial circuit (well, he was the circuit), Ev made the voyage out west to California. He founded Blogger, one of the most popular blogging services, sustained it throughout the dot com bust with few resources, and sold it to Google. After spending some time at Google growing Blogger, he’s back on the trail again building his new podcast business, Odeo.

    Odeo is a young startup with fuel. Ev announces in this show that Odeo has just received its first round of venture funding.

    Update (4/21/08): Ev returned Odeo’s funds to the investors and sold the company. He co-founded Twitter, which just raised its own funding and is on a fast growth curve.
