Congratulations to NileGuide for raising $8M since their launch on April 28th, bringing them to over $10.5M in total. The Series B investment was led by Austin Ventures and includes Lehman Brothers, Draper Richards and KPG Ventures. This is a significant validation of both the category and the company, as NileGuide is now the most well-funded travel planning site in existence.
