San Francisco Business Times

Jiff Inc., a Palo Alto-based start up in the hot realm of social networking and digital health apps, said it raised $7.5 million in Series A funding and named its first CEO, health information technology veteran Derek Newell. Aeris Capital led the round, with participation from Aberdare Ventures, Jiff’s founding seed investor, officials said Monday morning. But the morning got off to a bumpy start, with a scheduled press release ending up two hours late and a beta site temporarily unavailable.
