VSCO, which has been profitable since day one and now has 43 employees, has just raised $40,000,000:

Joel Flory, the chief executive and a founder of VSCO, said in a recent interview that although the company had been operating profitably, the team decided it wanted to expand and add to product offerings in international markets, as well as work on other creative ventures, like awarding grants to artists.

I’m interested and excited to see what they do with the funds. Pretty much every photograph I make finds its way through a VSCO filter of some sort. I use VSCO Cam on my iPhone and the VSCO Film presets in Lightroom for all the shots I take with my Olympus.
