I launched TrafficSynergy while at incuBeta, did a management buyout, and sold it a few years later.
incuBeta was a holding company I founded together with Vinny & Charlene Lingham & Llewellyn Claasen which started a number of brands, primarily on the Internet, many of which were later spun off into separate companies.
incuBeta has now been renamed Clicks2Customers.com (the name that the company started off as), a specialist Search Engine Marketing agency, focusing primarily on Pay Per Click.
Here is details about when clicks2customers was founded:
Other Brands which were founded and nurtured at incuBeta include:
TrafficSynergy - Affiliate Network
Synthasite (renamed Yola.com) - Website Builder
Some of the brands have been sold off, and I remain a shareholder in some of them.
