Seattle’s Evo Media launched DevHub today, a free platform for non-technical entrepreneurs to build a network of Web sites.
By this afternoon, nine hours after the launch, DevHub had signed more than 1,000 new users, according to senior vp and co-founder, Mark Michael.
During beta testing, more than 55,000 sites were built with the system, which apparently has more reach than Evo’s last venture, the now-defunct Down2Night nightlife Web service.
DevHub users produce their own content and may supplement it with content from partner sites in the DevHub network. They’ll get a cut of ad sales that are generated.
Evo’s funded by a group of local investors who also backed BuddyTV and Pet Holdings, the I Can Has Cheezburger folks. They include Jeff Schrock, Geoff Entress, John Cunningham, Alex Algard, Richard Wolpert, Bob Senoff.
