Elon Musk's Twitter Buys Laskie

9 months ago
Elon Musk's Twitter has reportedly made its first acquisition under his leadership, with the purchase of a job-matching startup called Laskie. The deal, valued at tens of millions of dollars, indicates Musk's ambition to transform Twitter into a "super-app" offering a range of integrated services. Laskie, founded in 2021 and based in San Francisco, positioned itself as a powerful platform for hiring tech talent, improving job search experiences for applicants and facilitating efficient candidate sourcing for companies. Laskie had raised $6 million in funding and was led by CEO Chris Bakke, who had previously sold another startup to online job board Indeed. Reports suggest that Twitter paid for Laskie through a combination of cash and stock, though the exact amount was not disclosed.
