After just 3 months of intensive hard work, meetings, discussions about features, and not so much marketing our little startup “TheTechMap” attracted the attention of LinkedIn and we are happy to announce that we’ve been acquired by them as of today.
This shows that larger companies are acquiring small and unfunded startups to increase their feature set, to add talent to their engineering organizations and to buy some innovation that comes from small companies like ours. This is happening just days after Yahoo acquired mobile news aggregator Summly from 17-year-old Nick D’Aloisio. Our advice to all other startups out there, build something really fast, bring it to the attention to large internet companies and get your check!
Oh, and happy April 1st, yes it’s an April Fools joke!
