Fresh Funding Sprouts Up For Sprout

The company driving the idea of easy-to-create Flash content has an extra $5 million to further its product.

Sprout secured the funding in a deal with investment firm Polaris Venture Partners today. Sprout’s work can be seen all over the web in the form of video- and audio-based widgets on blogs, Myspace profiles, and other random web sites. It makes it obscenely simple to create the interactive widgets, so any web publisher — tech-skilled or not — can make it happen.

Sprout co-founder and CEO Carnet Williams talks more about the company and the future in the video below.
