Share Article

Two Washington DC-based agencies merge to form an international user experience, engineering, and product development consultancy with over one hundred employees.

Intridea is pleased to announce we have been acquired by Mobomo, a premier provider of web and mobile development services to businesses, government agencies, and non-profit organizations.

Both teams are excited about the opportunity this acquisition presents. "Marc Garrett and Jürgen Altziebler have built an organization of exceptional talent. We are extremely lucky to work with Intridea," said Brian Lacey, CEO of Mobomo.

The teams are a perfect fit of complementary skills: Mobomo focuses on Rails web development and mobile expertise, especially in the government space. Mobomo is the team behind, the official Navy mobile apps, and USASearch—the search engine that will eventually power every single query for the United States Government; Intridea has evolved into a product development, user experience, and AngularJS consultancy with a focus on startups and the enterprise.

"If you've read business news, received a paycheck, opened an email, had a baby, or attended a wedding, you've encountered Intridea's work," said Marc Garrett, CEO of Intridea. "Our products are viable, delightful, and engage tens of millions of users."

"Few agencies offer a best-in-class combination of user centered software design and engineering services. By bringing together Mobomo and Intridea, our teams will ship mission critical applications to our Fortune 500 clients," said Jürgen Altziebler, Chief Creative Officer of Intridea. "We transform not just applications but businesses and I look forward to serving our clients."

This acquisition was about more than just growth. It was also about bringing companies with a common ancestry together. "One aspect of the acquisition that was particularly attractive to me was the fact that Mobomo and Intridea share a common DNA in Barg Upender, who co-founded Intridea with David Naffis in 2007 and founded Mobomo in 2009," said Mr. Lacey. This mutual foundation will allow Mobomo to merge Intridea's team and processes into Mobomo operations painlessly.

"Joining Mobomo feels like coming home," said Mr. Garrett.
