SLIM DEVICES (from Logitech)

Logitech nedávno koupil autora mých oblíbených hraček - firmu Slim Devices. Tento startup je ukázkou možností, které mladým podnikatelům poskytuje Sillicon Valley -- takto o Slim Devices psala Liz Gannes na blogu GigaOM ještě před akvizicí:

...Operated almost entirely in the Valley, Slim Devices is profitable on a sliver of seed funding, and set to do $10 million in sales this year. Led by a 27-year-old CEO, Sean Adams, with little-to-no senior management, the company employs only six engineers, and 20 more employees to take care of assembling the product and answering customer calls. It has open-sourced its software, with outside enthusiasts/developers dreaming up plug-ins that are quickly made into core features.

Myslím, že to nepotřebuje komentáře...

Logitech is doing some cool things. I wonder what they paid? When I find out I'll post it here. I plan to see the CFO in early December and get something out on them. They trade at a decent valuation but because they use channels extensively investors tend to be worry about the potential for a misstep.

Could be an interesting company and is certainly on of the "Euro 20" to keep an eye on...
