Kindo Acquired by MyHeritage

Posted on 23 September 2008 by Demian Turner

I didn’t get a chance yet to blog about our last TechCrunching, but Kindo, the startup I co-founded in March 2007, today announced its sale to MyHeritage, the biggest player in the family tree space.

Kindo is a PHP social net app built on the Seagull framework and other open source software.  At peak popularity our users were building 38k profiles/day and we acquired more than 1m profiles in our first 10 weeks.  More details on my CV.

Hats off to the Kindo team and to the Kindo devs who don’t appear in the TC photo.

    Demian, you are the man. I’ve been a long time fan of Seagull and also a Kindo user. I knew that this application had amazing potential and its great to see that so many people felt the same way. Hats off to you and your team, this is definitely well-deserved.

    Thanks Malaney – we’re still working hard on building great apps, keep your eyes peeled for CMS and ecomm products around the corner 😉
