TuneUp Adds $2M to C Round

San Francisco-based TuneUp Media, which makes software designed to enhance the music and album information available in Apple iTunes and Windows Media Player, announced the second close of its recent Series C round today. The original $4.3 million round, provided by IDG Ventures and KPG Ventures last September, has now grown to $6.3 million thanks to an additional infusion from IDG Ventures. The company also announced the hiring of former Teleplace CEO Greg Nuyens as chief technology officer, and former Warner Pictures consultant Tim Mitchell as vice president of product management. “TuneUp plays an important role for music fans who want to get the most from their digital music library,” said IDG Ventures managing director Phil Sanderson in a statement. “We believe that TuneUp represents a very large additive opportunity to the iTunes ecosystem and are excited about developments at the company and the talent they are attracting.”
