Sensobi Acquired by GroupMe for Group Texting

5/5/11

Cambridge, MA-based Sensobi, a startup that makes an address book for the BlackBerry, has been acquired by New York-based GroupMe. Financial terms of the deal weren’t given. Sensobi started in 2009 and was a member of the inaugural class of TechStars Boston. Its co-founders, Ajay Kulkarni and Andy Cheung, have joined GroupMe, itself a mobile-messaging startup (albeit a better-financed one, to the tune of $11.5 million from General Catalyst, Khosla Ventures, and others). GroupMe, which is just a year old, focuses on group-texting on mobile devices.
