Google acquires Genacast Portfolio Company Divide (aka Enterproid) Today Divide (aka Enterproid) was acquired by Google. This is a wonderful story about an amazing founding team -- Andrew Toy, David Zhu and Alex Trewby -- who had a vision that employees would "bring your own (mobile) device" (BYOD) into the workplace and that security would be paramount. Their solution was revolutionary, giving your phone dual persona: work and personal. Years ahead of its time back in 2010 when we led their seed round and still cutting edge today.
If there is a lesson here it would be think big, be laser focused on execution and surround yourself with people who complement and challenge you. Divide was a family with amazing talent spread all over the globe in New York, London and Hong Kong. A truly international effort.
I am grateful to Owen Davis of NYC Seed for introducing me to this opportunity and being a great partner over these 3.5 years.
Google is acquiring ground-breaking technology and a wonderful team. I look forward to seeing more amazing developments from the Divide, now Google team.
A heartfelt congratulations to the entire Divide team for a job well done and well deserved. Thank you for allowing me to take this journey with you. I am certainly a better person for it with many new friends.
