U.S. business-to-business search engine Accoona has been acquired by Denmark-based business-to-business search engine Masterseek. Accoona launched in 2004 and has seen much of its success in China.
"We have worked intensely for the last two weeks in order to get all of the legalities and finances in place for the takeover and there is still a great deal of work in front of us to integrate and re-launch the search service," states Rasmus Refer, founder of the Masterseek Corp.
Accoona will be re-launched (again) with integrated Masterseek data in the U.S. and China. Then it will be launched in Europe. The target date for the European release is January 2009.
