> Dabble DB, a Vancouver-based online database / hosted 
> application creation company has raised around $2 million 
> dollars in Series A venture funding from Ventures West, a 
> Canadian VC fund. Paul Kedrosky, a venture partner with the 
> fund, is leading the investment in the eighteen-month-old 
> company. The company will also come out of “beta”

> quite a few paying customers, and perhaps this new round of 
> financing will help them scale their operations. Dabble DB 
> falls under the same category as say a Ning:
> companies that help build on-the-fly web apps.
> The company was started by Avi Bryant and Andrew Catton, both 
> first time entrepreneurs. DabbleDB has received some good 
> reviews. I plan to spend some time looking at Dabble DB
