Jellyfish Founder Sells Other Company

March 23, 2007 · 0 comments

Brian Wiegand, co-founder of the rewards program, was called a “serial entrepreneur” by the Wisconsin Technology Network, as they announced today that he had sold his second internet startup.
NameProtect, founded in 1997, was just sold by Wiegand to a company out of Wilmington, Delaware called Corporation Service Co. for an undisclosed amount.
According to the Capital Times of Madison, WI, Wiegand sold his first internet company, Business Filings (established in 1996), to a Dutch company for $14 million in 2002.
Wiegand says he’s got no plans to start any new ventures, but… it’s never terribly reassuring to hear the owner of one of your favorite rewards programs even in jest be called a “serial entrepreneur.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that — I’m a big believer in free enterprise and the profit motive. But it makes you wonder: what is Weigand’s long-term commitment to the site? Will Jellyfish be just another notch in his belt? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see!
