Whenever a TechStars company is acquired, they get a yellow shirt with their number on the back. Last month Fitrbox, a TechStars Boulder 2007 company, was acquired by Jive Software. The yellow shirt presentation is in the short video below:
On Tuesday, February 9th at the Denver Athletic Club (1325 Glenarm in Denver) Filtrbox’s founders Ari Newman and Tom Chikoore are going to do a presentation titled Filtrbox – A Case Study from Start-up to Exit on the story of Filtrbox. I expect this will include everything from the very start of the company, to their experience with TechStars, to their first financing, through launching a product, seeing early customer growth, and ultimately being acquired by Jive Software.
This event is being hosted by the Rockies Venture Club and the discussion will be facilitated by Mark Weakley from HRO who was Filtrbox’s outside counsel and involved from the beginning. Ari and Tom have a great story that’s instructive for any early stage entrepreneur – I encourage you to attend.
