StartupDigest gets acquired by Startup Weekend

Hot off of TechCrunch, StartupDigest has been acquired by Startup Weekend. is a local events resource and email newsletter that had over 230,000 subscribers.  Seems like a great fit with Startup Weekend, which is the organizer of hackathons across the world.  While the companies aren’t based in NY (Seattle for Startup Weekend and Palo Alto for StartupDigest), Startup Weekend recently had a weekend hackathon at AlleyNYC, which was packed wall-to-wall.  They’ve both been hugely popular with the NY tech community.

The new version of StartupDigest is going to be called GroupTie, while some of the StartupDigest’s team members are joining Startup Weekend.  Read more on TechCrunch.
