Funding Talk: Part II

Okay, maybe it's me. But when a storage startup gets new funding, isn't that something to talk about?

It seems not. Friday's announcement of a $45 million funding round for Agami sounded like great news, and it raises plenty of questions. But I hope you have better success tracking down the company spokespeople than I have.

Calls and emails to Agami and its PR folk at first raised no answers at all. Persistence resulted in getting some abrupt answers by phone and a "We're working on it!" cold shoulder by email.

Clearly, Agami doesn't want to discuss its funding. At least not with yours truly.

It was eerily reminiscent of Caringo's announcement of funding two weeks back. In that case, the company refused to reveal the amount funded. All the world needed to know was that money had been appropriated for the startup's needs, thank you very much.
