Masterseek acquires Accoona

A remarkable take over last week. Not because off the companies which are involved, but because of the countries involved.

A Danish company, business-to-business search engine Masterseek, actually bought an American company, Accoona.

In 2004 Accoona launched with a bang, having Bill Clinton speak at the opening of the website. The b2b search engine never really got solid ground in both US and Europe. In China however they were succesfull.

Accoona will now be integrated with Masterseek in China and the US. In January 2009 they want to launch in Europe.

“We have worked intensely for the last two weeks in order to get all of the legalities and finances in place for the takeover and there is still a great deal of work in front of us to integrate and re-launch the search service,” said Rasmus Refer, founder of the Masterseek Corp.
