Last Updated: 15:44 January 28, 2014
San Francisco-based Sprintly purchased all stock in Boulder-based Quick Left, according to Ingrid Alongi, Quick Left's founder who now is the company's chief executive officer-consulting. No cash changed hands, Alongi said, and the cash value of the deal was not disclosed.
The merged company will operate under the Quick Left name. The company plans to grow through sales of its Sprintly software product. In Boulder, the company plans to hire five to eight new developers and salespeople, Alongi said. Additional sales staff are expected to be hired in San Francisco, and new developers will be hired in San Francisco and in a Portland, Oregon, office, said Rachel Scott, a company spokeswoman. In all, the company has about 30 people.
Quick Left will continue to operate as a consulting company that offers business solutions to clients, Alongi said. In addition, the company plans to host a "mini-incubator" in its office in which staffers can pitch ideas for products that may become part of the company's revenue model in the future, Alongi said.
Quick Left clients have included companies such as Comcast and Disney, Alongi said.
Matt Work will become the new chief executive officer of the new Quick Left company. He is the former Sprintly chief science officer. Work and Alongi will manage the company, along with Sam Breed, a founder of Quick Left, and Joe Stump a founder of Sprintly, according to a press statement.
