Company Raises Private Capital and Begins Operations at Headquarters in Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (March 13, 2012) — Modbook Inc., a privately held company focused on developing innovative products and technologies for the creative marketplace, today announced that it has successfully secured private equity funding and thus completed its fundraising efforts for its startup and working capital needs.

Prior to that, Mr. Haas held several management positions at Apple Inc. (then Apple Computer) in Europe, including managing Apple’s Professional Desktop & Server Systems, its Portable Product Lines and the Newton Systems Group.
