BucketFeet Steps Into $7.5 Million


BucketFeet is hitting it even bigger with $7.5 million in Series A funding. JumpStart Ventures (led by ContextMedia's Rishi Shah and Shradha Agarwal) led the fundraising round. Since it was founded in 2011, BucketFeet has raised $13.3 million and grown exponentially. The sky's the limit for this incredible company connecting people through art, and giving the world very cool shoes in the process. Congratulations to founders Aaron Firestein and Raaja Nemani on their continued success. At Catapult, we are proud to say "we knew them when..."
