Need a list of acquired companies and founders
I'm looking for a list of companies that were acquired by one of: Google, Amazon, Facebook, Zynga, and Yahoo in the last 4 years. I would also like the names of the founders of these companies where possible. Please provide the data in a Google docs spreadsheet with the following columns:
Name of acquirer (i.e. Google), Name of company, Acquisition date (can be approximate), Name of founder 1, Name of founder 2, ...
The list has to be *thorough*. You can use the tech press (i.e. http://techcrunch.com/search/acquisition) as a starting point to discover what companies were acquired. You can then use LinkedIn to find the names of the founders, or just searching the web in general.
Please Note: I Pay On Tuesdays and Fridays ONLY
