Eye-Fi Raises $20 Million Series D Round

Eye-Fi, a start-up based in Mountain View, California, raised $20 million in Series D funding for its wireless memory cards.
The new funding was led by NTT DOCOMO and included existing investors Shasta Ventures, Opus Capital and TransLink Capital. NTT DOCOMO joins Eye-Fi as an investor and strategic partner, expanding the connected imaging leader's distribution and further establishing its mobile partnerships.

In April, NTT DOCOMO will become the first partner to launch Eye-Fi card activation via mobile phones. This enables NTT DOCOMO's 59 million mobile subscribers to quickly and easily share high quality images between their digital cameras, mobile devices, online photo sites and digital photo frame – no computer required.
In addition Eye-Fi announced the appointment of former Skype and eBay executive Michele Don Durbin as Vice President of Marketing.
