Backed by $6M, Curiosity.com Grows Out of Discovery

CURIOSITY.COM (not to be confused with Curious.com), which started in January 2014 as an internal project of Discovery Communications, is leaving the nest. Now the online platform, which aggregates and curates educational videos and playlists from over 300 providers, will be operated by Beacon Solutions, backed by $6 million in Series A funding led by Discovery and joined by Pritzker Group Venture Capital, Origin Ventures, Chicago Ventures and Corazon Capital. Gabe Vehovsky, who started the project as an executive at Discovery, will be CEO. More details in the release.
