Our Illustrous Alumini
Founder & Co-CEO , Flipora
Siddharth Jonathan was a graduate student in Computer Science at Stanford, working with Prof. Hector Garcia-Molina and Dr.Andreas Paepcke of the Stanford InfoLab. (Before which he was a graduate student in Computer Science and Engineering at Sri Venkateswara college of engineering) He is also a recipient of the Best Masters Thesis Award at Stanford for his work on SpotSigs which was later published in SIGIR. He is currently Founder & Co-CEO of Flipora, a mood-aware web discovery service with 30M users that he co-founded with Vijay Krishnan while still enrolled at Stanford. In simple terms, it plays the role of a ‘memory’ by keeping a record of a user’s complete browsing history. So no need to bookmark, tag or try to think hard about that one great website you saw a week ago. Users can download the Infoaxe extension for their browsers and forget about having to remember urls and websites. Infoaxe was incorporated as a company, it was officially launched in late 2008 at a time when they raised $9,00,000 as a seed fund. The environment at Stanford and later Silicon Valley was ideal for setting up a 15-people office at Sunnyvale, California. In August, last year, they raised an additional $3 million by way of venture capital and angel funding.
