Torbit Heads To Silicon Valley
In a talent loss for Boulder's startup community, Torbit, the startup founded by Josh Fraser and Jon Fox, is heading out of Boulder and moving to Silicon Valley. The news came via a blog post from Fraser, who said it was a "tough decision to make." Fraser attributed the move to wanting to hire engineers currently located in the valley, plus the presence of customers and potential partners in Silicon Valley. Fraser was founder of EventVue, and Fox was the founder of IntenseDebate. Torbit develops a service to automatically optimize web sites for faster performance.
