Local Seattle startup Gist announced today that they are acquiring the Startup Weekend app “Learn That Name.” The idea was pitched last August in Redmond by Eric Koester a local lawyer firm Cooley Godward Kronish.

See the article in TechCrunch.

There will be a live demo of the new feature within Gist at Seattle Startup Weekend this weekend by Gist CEO, TA McCann and Learn Than Name CEO Eric Koester.

This is certainly a great story for the Learn that Name team as well as an exciting new feature for Gist.

This is among the few recent announcements of successful Startup Weekend ventures. In just the past month there have been three other great announcements:

  • Atlanta Startup Weekend’s TwitPay sold for $100k and is getting a subsequent investment of $1 million. More here.
  • SubMate from Paris Startup Weekend will launch at PLUGG 2010
