Entrecard has been Acquired by Ziprunner, Inc.


Just received an email from the Graham Langdon, the Founder of EntreCard and announced that Entrecard has been fully acquired by Los Angeles based ZipRunner, Inc., quite surprising.

Now that Entrecard has been sold, I wonder what the future holds for them and for the users, new apps? A system or additional features? And I tried to search for ZipRunner, I can find much on them…We don’t know what will happen, only time will tell…Goodluck to Graham, to the new management of Entrecard and read the email excerpt below:

Dear Entrecarders,

It is with great excitement that I announce Entrecard.com, Inc. has been acquired by Los Angeles based ZipRunner Inc.

ZipRunner has the resources, vision, and dedication to Entrecard that will allow it to grow in pursuit of the vision I laid out nearly two years ago.

Moving forward, my relationship to Entrecard will be that of an adviser, and I will help the good folks at ZipRunner take the whole project to the next level. Expect a follow up communication from them very soon.

ZipRunner Inc. was chosen out of a number of potential suitors because of the resources they can dedicate to the project, their exciting vision for the company's future, and their understanding of social media and the blogosphere.

I urge you all to look forward to a bigger, better Entrecard, and I couldn't be more proud to bring it to this point before passing the torch. I've heard first hand all the great things that are in store for the company and it's members, and needless to say it has me quite excited.

If you would like to keep in touch with me in the future, your can find me at my new blog Ontrapranore.com where I look forward to sharing my stories of entrepreneurship and starting/running internet companies.

Whether you love or hate the decisions I've made for Entrecard in the past, I always did the best I could to move the company forward given the resources I had, and I always had the best interest of the members in mind. Now, with new management and ownership stepping in, I urge anyone who has left the service to give it another chance, and I urge those who have been loyal members for days, weeks, months, or years to look forward to a brighter future, a reliable and stable service, and
great new features and strategic direction.

Signing Off,
Graham Langdon
Founder of Entrecard
