Today Bing Fund and Sonar announced that Bing Fund has reached across this great land of ours to invite Sonar into its portfolio of startups. And they made at least part of their announcement via Vine. We think it really may be the first ever press release via Vine.
Sonar and Microsoft actually have a storied past.
Over the years, we have crossed paths with Sonar across the land of tech probably more than any other startup. Whether it was TC Disrupt NYC, PSFK NYC, at our own epic pop-up gallery, SMW, and most recently Xconomy NYC, wherever we went, it seemed that the cool little periscope was right there with us. We would bring each other up to speed, and talk about “Hey, wouldn’t it be cool to work together?” And go our separate ways until the next serendipitous encounter.
Well, now it's on. Congratulations to both teams. No word yet on whether that means the Sonar team will be moving to Seattle for a few months.
