Stubbs Alderton & Markiles lawyers Scott Alderton and Sean Greaney helped client Unsubscribe.com, an LA-based startup, raise a $2.1 million Series A financing. The round, which closed on October 15, 2010, was led by Charles River Ventures from Menlo Park, CA, joined by First Round Capital and DFJ Frontier. Other investors included Ron Conway’s SV Angel, Matt Coffin, Tim Ferriss, Matt Brezina, Robin Richards and SAM’s own fund, SAM Venture Partners.
Unsubscribe.com was started by James Siminoff (who previously founded PhoneTag/Simulscribe, which is now part of DiTech), Joshua Roth, and Wil Schroter. It adds an “Unsubscribe” button to every email that allows you to unsubscribe from an email or marketing list by simply clicking the unsubscribe button on your toolbar, and Unsubscribe takes care of the rest. In order to use the service, you first need to download an extension for your email client at www.unsubscribe.com.
