Summify acquired by Twitter

Today, Summify announced it has been acquired by Twitter. We couldn’t be more happy for Cristian and Mircea.  They worked very hard for their success and have made us all proud.

Summify applied to the Bootup Labs January 2010 cohort under the name ReadFu. I remember it clearly. Boris was skypeing with the shortlisted applicants in November 2009, and after speaking with Cristian and Mircea, I could tell by the look on his face that he found a winner. Having not talked to them myself, I admit, I was a bit more skeptical. I wasn’t a fan of the idea that they were presenting, but then Boris reminded me of our own rule.  “We don’t back ideas, we back PEOPLE”

After a few more conversations with Cristian and Mircea, I was sold. By January 2010, Mircea and Cristian moved to Vancouver and got started. In that time, they developed their first product, ReadFu, which was similar to Snap.com, but after not being satisfied with their initial traction, they decided to pivot.  Summify was born.  I’ve been a user of Summify ever since and look forward getting my emails every morning.  I can hardly wait to see what they come up with next.

From everyone at Bootup Labs, we wish you success at Twitter.

    Do you subcontract consumers some of that dirt? For this reason, with all the
