With the fury of CES email launch pitches and events the last couple week, I did not get a chance to share the news and our congratulations to Filtrbox with the rest of the TECH cocktail community.
Filtrbox, one of the first Boulder TechStars companies, was also one of our first TECH cocktail Boulder demoing startups. We have covered them a couple of different times as they rolled out a solid social media alerts and monitoring dashboard. I always referred to it as “Google Alerts” on steroids and used the daily email digests to monitor a number of filtrs at one time.
Check out the video from TECH cocktail Boulder 1 and you will see them sharing the Filtrbox story around the 2 minute mark:
The acquisition of Filtrbox enables Jive to broaden the reach of our top-rated Social Business Software with a highly complementary technology.
The combined company will now tackle a much bigger opportunity in the marketplace as we will provide the only integrated social business software offering that both discovers conversations and provides the community space to enhance and facilitate the conversation.
Congrats to Ari Newman, Filtrbox and TechStars on your startup being acquired and best of luck with your future endeavors. For additional analysis check out these articles on TechCrunch, Rocky Radar, Colorado Daily and Mashable.
