The Epic Exit: Why mobile startups are acquired - The Term Sheet: Fortune's deals blogTerm Sheet

The Epic Exit: Why mobile startups are acquired - The Term Sheet: Fortune's deals blogTerm Sheet | StartupStories | Scoop.it
Despite all the media attention over mobile startups, acquisitions are rare. Here's what makes a mobile startup appealing to tech giants.Last month, Facebook set the tech world ablaze with its $19 billion acquisition of messaging service WhatsApp, which is expected to reach 1 billion users in the next couple of years. Given the impressive numbers and reach, it's no surprise the company was acquired. The news received extensive media attention not only because of the scale of the deal, but also because acquisitions of mobile startups are relatively rare; the vast majority toil in relative obscurity. Which raises the question: Why do a few mobile startups, such as WhatsApp, achieve incredible outcomes while the majority fail? To shed some light, let's first take a stroll through the Apple (AAPL) App store as a proxy for competition in the mobile sector. It's hard to imagine that when the App store launched in July 2008 there were less than 1,000 apps available for download. Late last year, the figure surpassed 1 million ... and growing. The level of competition for a new entrant is downright frightening. This partially explains why the majority of mobile startups fail, but it does not explain why the fortunate few succeed.
