InstaMojo, a website that allows users to buy & sell digital files like reports, code, documents, photos, templates, tutorials, music, videos, and offer physical goods for free, has raised funding from DaveMcClure’s 500 Startups. The amount of the investment has not been disclosed. The investment was made public by Pankaj Jain on Twitter. Angel List also mentions Jain and Paul Singh of 500 Startups as investors.
