FiftyThree is going on fifteen. Fifteen million dollars, that is.
FiftyThree is the company behind Paper, an iPad app that Apple named 2012 iPad App of the Year. Today FiftyThree closed a $15 million deal led by Chris Dixon at Andreessen Horowitz with participation from Highline Ventures, Thrive Capital, SV Angel, and Jack Dorsey.
Paper takes the tools that traditionally stimulate creativity -- like pencils, pens, markers, and paints -- and turns them into digital versions that allow artists to reach the heights of their creativity on the iPad.
