Webaroo, which over the years morphed into SMS GupShup, has long been a company I've liked. (Anand, one of the Kosmix co-founders, and one of the investors in Webaroo, likes them too - check out his blog post on them).
Webaroo, though, is finally moving their entire team to India. That means those on the US team who aren't moving over, are moving on. I believe Rakesh Mathur, their CEO, might also be taking some time off from Webaroo.
This comes after some good traction news from Webaroo -
- SMS Gupshup has a user base of 12 Million people (I believe this is all in India. I have the Webaroo tool installed on Firefox, but they don't seem to be working on that any more)
- Helion Ventures and Charles River Ventures just put another $11 Million into the company, in October 2008. Very good!
