Lytro secures $40m from North Bridge, existing backers


lytroCamera maker Lytro has raised $40m from new and existing venture capital investors to fund further expansion of the business.

New investor North Bridge Venture Partners participated in the round alongside existing backers Andreessen Horowitz, New Enterprise Associates and Greylock Partners.

The company’s Light Field cameras enable users to focus pictures after they’ve been taken and change the perspective in the picture.

North Bridge general partner Jonathan Heiliger said, “We are excited to partner with Lytro in building the next wave of interactive image capture and sharing.

“The fun you experience when using a Lytro camera comes from the ability to engage with your photos in ways you never could before. But powering that interactivity is some great software and hardware technology that can be used for everything with a lens and sensor.”

Last month North Bridge’s growth team closed its second fund on $580m, bringing its total capital under management to over $1.1bn.
