Congrats Vancouver Innovation: Avi and Andrew's DabbleDB gets funded

Congrats to Avi and Andrew for getting funded. I'm saying congrats to Vancouver's innovation with this post as well, and it's great to see that local Vancouver VC firm Ventures West did this deal.

Paul Kedrosky points to Om's scoop, and calls DabbleDB the first Enterprise 2.0 company. I suspect Paul's position at VenturesWest had a thing or two with making this deal happen.

I planned to post on this tomorrow, but I see the news is already breaking, and Om has the scoop: the venture firm Ventures West in Vancouver has closed a Series A financing round of Dabble DB. He has it mostly right, including the huge opportunity for Andrew Catton's and Avi Bryant's startup. Let's call this the first truly "Enterprise 2.0" company.

One small correction/comment: The investment size is only Om's guess, and the actual dollars will not be announced -- whether larger or smaller. 
Can the local venture and innovation communities continue to churn out winners? I hope so :P
