Mobomo is pleased to announce that it has acquired Intridea, a DC-based product development consulting firm specializing in Web 2.0 application development.
Over the past several years, Mobomo has been focusing heavily on cutting edge web development to complement its expertise in mobile. Projects such as NASA.gov and USASearch coupled with Mobomo’s background in Ruby on Rails provided the opportunity for Mobomo to flex its web muscles. Adding Intridea’s team, proficiency, and web & mobile app portfolio to Mobomo’s roster demonstrates its commitment to growing its capabilities in web development and technologies, such as AngularJS.
Both teams are excited about the opportunity this acquisition presents. “Marc Garrett and Jürgen Altziebler have built an organization of exceptional talent. We are extremely lucky to work with Intridea,” said Brian Lacey, CEO of Mobomo.
“I’m thrilled to merge our user experience, product development, and Angular skills with Mobomo’s mobile and web expertise,” said Marc Garrett, CEO of Intridea.
The acquisition of Intridea means Mobomo will be able to offer even more world class web development services to our customers. “If you’ve read business news, received a paycheck, opened an email, had a baby, or attended a wedding, you’ve encountered Intridea’s work. Our designs are viable, useful, and engage tens of millions of users,” said Garrett.
This acquisition was about more than just growth. It was also about bringing companies with a common ancestry together. “One aspect of the acquisition that was particularly attractive to me was the fact that Mobomo and Intridea share a common DNA in Barg Upender, who co-founded Intridea in 2007 and founded Mobomo in 2009,” said Lacey. This mutual foundation will allow Mobomo to merge Intridea’s team and processes into Mobomo operations painlessly.
Our family just got a little bigger. Please join us in welcoming Intridea to Team Mobomo.
