Wikia, a user-generated content portal based in San Francisco, has raised $15 million in a Series D round led by Digital Garage with participation from previous backers Amazon, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Institutional Venture Partners along with strategic investors Asuka Investments, video game developer Tose, and former CEO of Sony Nobuyuki Idei.
Wikia operates the world’s largest network of collaboratively published content on the web, with over 120 million global unique monthly users and 34 million pages of content.
Founded in 2006 by Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, Wikia has raised nearly $40 million to date and will use the latest cash to expand into Japan and other Asian markets.
