Intercasting acquired by Good Technology

Yes it is true. Read about it here and here. After almost exactly five years, we have sold our company to Good Technologies. We are excited to be a part of their team going forward and think that together we will have a big impact in wireless.

A special thanks goes to our investors, specifically Steve Tomlin from Avalon, Rich Levandov and Braden Bohrmann from Masthead Venture Partners and Brian Ascher from Venrock. Without their support over the last five or so years none of this would have been possible. I feel very fortunate to have had a thoughtful and supportive board over the various twists and turns of this journey.

The biggest thanks goes to our team. Their hardwork made our vision a reality. We are very excited that the team will continue on as part of Good and will continue to create the great things they have for us in the past.

Without a doubt I personally owe the most to my wife and my family. They are always there for me and my wife is a first class startup spouse. Her advice is sound and her support unwavering. She is the best. Hands down.

We started our journey with Rabble, made a strategy shift to support the entire social networking category for operators, and recently created an unbelievable rendering engine that makes iPhone like experiences for feature phones. Three big phases in the life of our company and quite an interesting journey. Thanks to all the friends who helped along the way and to all the friends I made as well. You know who you are. ;-)

Finally, a big thanks to the Good team. We spent a long time getting to know each other and seeing what a fit would look like. I have the utmost confidence that we will make some big waves and be viewed as a great success. I look forward to sharing some of the highlights in the future.
