Canadian venture firm Ventures West has led an investment into Dabble DB, the Vancouver company that lets you build business and financial applications on the fly.

It is coming out of testing mode today, and announcing it has — get this — some paying customers.

Dabble DB lets you cobble together group spreadsheets, custom databases, and intranet web applications; a good early review is here.

Paul Kedrosky, a venture investor at the firm, told us yesterday about the news. He calls it the “first true Enterprise Web 2.0” company, referring to the fact that it is selling a product to big companies (as opposed to simply tickling the fancy of geek masses). Kedrosky writes one of the more provocative venture blogs, called Infectious Greed; we will add him to our growing blogroll. He is joining Dabble’s board.

Amount of the round was undisclosed, though Om pegs the round at $2 million.
