Cisco Backs Video Ad Startup Innovid In New $10M Round — Innovid, a startup that helps advertisers create, target, and measure video ad campaigns, is announcing that it has raised $10 million in new funding. As part the round, the startup is bringing on Cisco Investments as a new investor. (Previous backers such as Genesis Partners, Sequoia Capital, and T-Venture also participated.)

Whipclip Launches So You Can Legally Share Your Favorite TV Moments — There's a lot of talk about how social media has become the new watercooler for discussing TV's funny, crazy, or otherwise memorable moments. What's been more hit-or-miss, however, is finding the actual footage that everyone's talking about.

Kitchenbowl Raises $1M To Help Users Create Easy-To-Follow, GIF-Heavy Recipes — Okay, I'll admit it: I don't cook much, and when I do, it's usually something simple like eggs or pasta. I'd like to be more adventurous, I swear, but every time I try to follow a fancy recipe, I always end up covered in sweat and/or tears.

With New Support For Mobile Ads, Facebook’s LiveRail Isn’t Just For Video Anymore — Facebook is expanding LiveRail, the video ad platform that it acquired last year, with support for non-video mobile ads. Facebook's Deb Liu announced the new features today while on-stage at the company's F8 developer conference.

Now Dollar Shave Club Sells Hair Gel, Too — Dollar Shave Club started out as a subscription razor service (in fact, it's how I get my razors), but over the past couple of years the startup's been expanding its lineup with products like butt wipes and " post shave balm." Today it's moving into hairstyling with a range of products - gel, cream, paste, fiber, and even clay.

Nanigans Raises $24M To Fuel Asian Growth And Expand Its Ad Tools Beyond Facebook — Leading Facebook ad company Nanigans is announcing that it has raised $24 million in Series B funding. In what has become a fairly common move, Nanigans is taking money from a big Asian investor, in this case Chinese Internet company Cheetah Mobile. Naturally, the hope here is to accelerate Nanigans' growth in that region.

E-Book Startup Oyster Hires Jeannie Mun As Its First CFO — Oyster, a Netflix-style service for e-books, has brought on its first chief financial officer, Jeannie Mun. Before joining Oyster, Mun spent a lot of time in the ad world, having recently served as CFO at ad company MediaMath, and before that working as vice president of finance and strategy at ad software company Operative.

Cotopaxi Raises $6.5M To Sell Socially Conscious Outdoor Gear — Cotopaxi, an e-commerce startup that also emphasizes making the world a better place, has raised $6.5 million in Series A funding.

Mobile Marketing Startup Localytics Raises $35M More — Localytics, which offers analytics and marketing tools for mobile apps, is announcing that it has raised $35 million in Series D funding. The company started out with a focus on app analytics, but CEO Raj Aggarwal told me via email that customers also wanted tools that allowed them to act on their data.

DogVacay And Whistle Founders Talk Pet Tech Startups — I've already posted one interview from last weekend's Yappy Hour event at South by Southwest - my interview with Courtney Dasher, owner of Instagram star Tuna Melts My Heart. But I wasn't just there to talk about dogs that are big on social media.
