Kno Hires Fancy CFO, as It Preps Tablet Launch (And Possible New Funding Search)

Kno, the start-up attempting to make and market a student-aimed tablet and learning platform, has hired Stuart West as its new CFO.

West (pictured here) has worked at Yahoo, InfoSpace, TiVo and J.P. Morgan.

Kno is continuing to make key hires as it prepares to ship the product by the end of the year, after recently raising another $46 million in funding to add to a $10 million round.

Sources said that the Santa Clara, Calif., company could be back out raising even more money early next year.

Its current backers include prominent venture players like Andreessen Horowitz and First Round Capital, along with investors Mike Maples and Ron Conway.
