Is Forbes acquiring Clipmarks?
August 7, 2007
“VentureBeat just ran a story stating that Forbes has acquired Clipmarks. I wanted to quickly fill everyone in on what’s going on.
First, this article is a bit premature. We have not been acquired by Forbes. However, for the past few months we have been meeting with people at all levels of Forbes and the excitement and support they have shown for what we’re creating has been very meaningful to us. As many of you have probably seen already, a number of their writers are already clipping and our technology has been integrated on forbes.com.
For quite a while, we have been in talks with various parties about helping to financially support clipmarks. However, we hadn’t yet found the right “partner” to help us complete this journey. A partner who fully understands our vision for making news and information more portable and interactive than ever before. Therefore, we just kept looking.
In Forbes, we feel that we have an experienced, highly enthusiastic and hungry team of people who understand and appreciate why clipmarks is special. I believe they will be very helpful to us in fulfilling our potential.
That said, we’re still working to make this happen. In the coming weeks i hope/expect to have a more definitive announcement about our relationship.”
