News ByteYPlan has raised an awful lot of money based on some early traction in London. Invested in a $12 million Series A fund are General Catalyst Partners, Wellington Partners, Octopus Investments, A-Grade, SLOW Ventures Fund and Shakil Khan. The company’s app, which helps secure tickets to sold-out events, has been downloaded 200,000 times, which it estimates amounts to 10 percent of iPhones in London. It will launch in New York next.
