Mowser lives on after sale to dotMobi

Filed as Features, News on May 10, 2008 8:31 am

Russell Beattie, who we earlier profiled as eating more than buttered macaroni as his startup Mowser failed to catch on, has sold the property to dotMobi.

Russell states on his blog:

This is great news – Miker and I got pinged by a surprising number of people and companies interested in Mowser, but we went with dotMobi because they were first, enthusiastic, and we felt they would provide a good home for our work. While we didn’t get rich on the deal by any stretch, I’ve been able to pay off a bunch of debts (and not worry about stuff like rent and food) which has been a huge load off my mind.

TechCrunch also covers the story.
