With today being the official New Year’s holiday, things are quiet on the technology funding and acquisitions front, with one exception. Coursekit, which is bringing an interesting social media concept to the college classroom, announced that it has completed a $5 million Series A round to kick off 2012. The company, which was founded by University of Pennsylvania undergrads, landed $1 million in Seed funding in May.
Happy New Year from StartUp Beat!
