http://techcrunch.com – Duck Duck Moose, the startup behind a series of educational apps for children, is today announcing having closed on $7 million in Series A funding led by Sequoia Capital and Lightspeed Venture Partners, with participation from Stanford University. The company, whose paid applications have now seen over 2.4 million downloads, has remarkably grown its brand through word-of-mouth alone, earning 14 Parents’ Choice Awards along the way for all 14 apps. That’s the most any app maker has ever been awarded by the nonprofit, which offers special “seals of approval” to apps, (IT news)
