Flocations Acquired by VRG


Well, it has been a LONG journey.  And finally, Flocations.com - the marketplace for online travel, my little baby, has been acquired by Venture Republic Global (VRG), which is a Japanese company that is a powerhouse in Japan's meta-search scene.  Kei Shibata, a Flocations Director and CEO of VRG, lead the acquisition.

I'm a bit flabbergasted as it's been a tough journey.  There's so much emotional investment in something like this that it can sometimes be debilitating.  Luckily I always had my cofounder Venkat Dhamodaran and Shaw Chian that always stayed calm and followed me even in some bad decisions.  Florian Cornu was also an awesome support as a cofounder and later as a board member.

Thanks to everyone for this success.
