e-Bay Acquires Las Vegas Startup Rumgr

“Las Vegas and #VegasTech is abuzz with the news that Dylan Bathurst and Alex Coleman have sold the software behind their VegasTechFund startup, Rumgr, to auction and retail giant e-Bay,” wrote Ann Diab in this Tech Cocktail post. “Together with e-Bay, they will launch a new product called Close5, which is currently available in the App Store and officially launches October 1. Close5 takes the features that Rumgr worked to iterate and improve upon over the last three years, and packages it in a location-based app for buying and selling goods from nearby users.”

“We’d like to thank our loyal Rummagers, friends and those who have encouraged and supported us throughout these past three years. It has been an amazing journey that would not have been possible without all of you and it is our sincerest wish that you will continue showing us the love by joining us on Close5,” wrote the team in this message to users. “Much like Rumgr, Close5 is a mobile app centered around local buying and selling. We’ve brought our Rumgr experience to Close5 to help develop some features we believe our own Rummagers would really love: Cash transactions, anyone?”
