My favourite apps are getting acquired!

The latest in this list is Bigbasket. They got bought over by Tata.

Last month, Urban Ladder was bought over by Reliance.

Slack was bought by Salesforce for $ 27.7 Bn.

Slideshare was bought long time ago by LinkedIn.

And, LinkedIn was then bought over by Microsoft.

“Taxi For Sure” was acquired long ago by OLA.

Maybe, I have an eye / taste for good products & services.

I am in the wrong trade, I guess.

Maybe, I should become an Investor / #Mergers & #Acquisitions Consultant.

A senior friend was working with an Indian CRM product company.

He quit that company & joined Siebel.

Then, Oracle bought Siebel.

He quit Siebel & joined Agile Software.

Oracle then bought Agile Software. What? Yes, they did!

I think Oracle was following him wherever he went. 🙂

He should have become the Head of Acquisitions at Oracle.

Because, he had an eye for excellence. And he was riding the wave.

What #apps are you using?

Your favourite apps like Instagram, Whatsapp were acquired by Facebook long ago.

There is talk of #SuperApp doing the rounds.

Choose your apps wisely.

Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Unless, your name is Tata.
