Auctomatic acquired by Live Current Media

I’m happy to report that the Auctomatic team has been acquired by Live Current Media (TechCrunch entry here). You might also know Live Current Media by their former name,

I helped with this in a very small way by introducing Jonathan Ehrlich to the Auctomatic guys. Jonathan was hired by Communicate as President, and moved out to Vancouver from Toronto. We met back then through an introduction by Toronto-based mischief maker David Crow. Jonathan and Communicate have been excellent Vancouver tech community participants, supporting DemoCampVancouver and other local tech events.

I knew of the Auctomatic guys because they were a Y Combinator funded startup, and were hanging out with Avi and the team at DabbleDB. It was great to talk with this international team (England, Ireland, and elsewhere) and find them hiding in our backyard.

I call this success for Vancouver, and I’m looking forward to cool things from this team. Congrats to everyone evolved, I look forward to continue working with you. I expect great things!

    Heard about this just a few hours ago; this isn’t only good for Vancouver (*mutter*) but Canada in general. Nice to see another of the Y Combinator success stories go through!

    Vancouver FTW! 😛 I still need to put up a post agreeing with Jevon at Startup North: you’re right, the focus IS on us all working together to make Canada in general a great place for startup AND M&A activity to happen. And note, of course, that I have a Canada category, not one per city 😛

    Gentle competition is a good thing, however. And, after all, I’ve got a commercial business to promote here, whose very life blood will be measured at how good we are at making connections like this happen.
