I love it when we get to tell everyone about startup successes, and today is a whopper! I�m thrilled to announce that TechHub member Alexander Trewby, co-founder of Divide has big news today: Divide has been acquired by Google!
Huge congratulations to Alexander and his mega hard-working team! I am fairly bouncing about with excitement over this - not just what it means for Divide, but as such a great success for the London tech scene.
Divide (formerly Enterproid) started life at Alexander�s kitchen table in London with co-founders Andrew Toy and David Zhu, before moving to NYC and expanding to Hong Kong. Alexander gave Divide�s very first UK pitch at TechHub�s Demo Night just over two years ago, before the team then expanded to London.
I asked Alexander to tell us a bit about his experience as a TechHub member and he said �I�m proud to have debuted Divide at TechHub, here�s my shakily-taken picture of us on the programme, just before I got up to demo!�
�It was wonderful to also have TechHub as a speedily-provided home for us two summers ago when our lovely office down the road in Clerkenwell wasn�t ready in time. Through the team at TechHub we�ve been able to meet and get help from other entrepreneurs and tech community folks, and help them too, and it�s been a valuable resource even as we�ve grown.�
So remember folks, every time you go to a TechHub Demo Night , the entrepreneurs you�re watching can be the next big things, and you�re really important to helping them shape their products.
Awesomely, Alexander has agreed to come and meet TechHub members to talk about building an enterprise product, and what it�s like to go through the acquisition process. Keep your eyes peeled on the TechHub events page for dates and to register. In the meantime @Divide on twitter to cheer their success!
