Venture Capital Journal published an article called “Year in Review: Internet” [sub] in their January 2009 issue. In it, SocialThing (a TechStars company from 2007) was listed as #2 in the “Top M&A Returns for VC-backed Internet Companies” in 2008. SocialThing was acquired a AOL in September of 2008 when the company was about a year old.

Next year, we hope to see a TechStars company top this list! No more coming in second! 😉

Applications open January 19th for Summer, 2009. If you’re interested in investing in future great companies like SocialThing, please let us know!
