YEC members Siamak Taghaddos and David Hauser announced last week that their company Grasshopper has been acquired by Citrix. Grasshopper, a Needham, Massachusetts based business, provides call forwarding, answering, voicemail transcription and other services to entrepreneurs and small businesses.
Founded in 2003, Grasshopper's aim is to help entrepreneurs run their businesses from their cell phones. Citrix, a multinational company that provides SaaS, application and other software services, is well known for their work providing small businesses with communication and collaboration solutions.
"We’re still on a mission to empower entrepreneurs to succeed, and will continue to offer the same great service. By joining forces with Citrix, we’ll now have access to even greater resources and services to help you start, run and grow your businesses," said Grasshopper.
“With the acquisition we expand the breadth of our communication and collaboration solutions for small businesses, including GoToMeeting, GoToTraining, GoToWebinar, ShareFile and OpenVoice,” said Citrix Vice President Chris Battles in a release.
This announcement comes at a time when the need for mobile solutions for business communications is at an all time high.
