YourTechOnline acquired by SupportSoft
Last night I got an email from Steve Wandler, CEO of YourTechOnline. He told me the deal had closed and I can now finally blog about it. I had the inside info because I’m an advisor to the company. I instantly emailed Rob over at Techvibes to fill him in on the scoop, since I couldn’t get to blogging until tonight.
I was introduced to Steve through a mutual friend, Dale Fuller, former CEO of Borland, McAfee, WhoWhere, among other things. I know how hard Steve has worked for this, and I’m very excited that he has found a home for his baby at SupportSoft. Funny story about that… I met SupportSoft’s founder, Mark Pincus back in 1999 when my brother’s wife used to work for him there. Mark and I now keep in touch via facebook from time to time, but I’m pretty sure neither of us had anything to do with the acquisition. 🙂
Great job Steve, and thanks for proving once again that BC is growing hotbed of tech startups.
