Hi, does anyone know the date when SynthaSite (now Yola) was launched? I never knew how long Yola / SynthaSite has been open.

Thanks,
Nathan

So it was founded in March 2007.



The business started out under the name SynthaSite, founded by Vinny Lingham in March 2007. In November 2007, the company raised a $5 million round of financing from Columbus Venture Capital and launched the beta version of the product.

According to Wikipedia, Yola is celebrating its three-year anniversary this month. :-)

Wow! They will probably be posting an update pretty soon. GS was just announcing their 3 year anniversary too in September. Thanks Keara for your reply! :)

It all depends when you count from, but I think Keara is right. We launched our public beta in November of 2007 under the name of SynthaSite. So that does make this month an anniversary for us. Happy Birthday Yola!

As a matter of interest the Yola staff from the Cape Town office had their year end function last night. Lots of fun, and great timing for a celebration!
