HowStuffWorks Works Better with Major Funding

6 comments

HowStuffWorks just had a major infusion of cash:

HowStuffWorks, which provides product information for Internet users, on Thursday said financier Carl Icahn made a "significant investment" in the company to help fund its growth.

Entrepreneur Jeff Arnold, chairman and chief executive of the Atlanta-based company, didn't disclose the size of Icahn's investment, but in an interview said it amounts to "tens of millions" of dollars.

I bet there is probably room for a few more large pure content plays, although for most people networks of niche channels will probably work a bit better.

Carl Icahn is the billionaire hedge fund investor who recently promised to personally kick Time Warner board members in the head if they let go of AOL too cheaply.
