Company Details

Update

Founded by four friends in 2004, Goowy Media offers free Web 2.0 products Goowy Webtop and YourMinis that let people share and communicate easily on the web. Goowy Webtop includes a comprehensive set of tools for instant messaging, e-mail, calendar, news, rss, file storage, and sharing. YourMinis, the company's other product, essentially provides users with a very personalized and integrated web homepage. Prior to Goowy, the company's founders were collectively involved in two other internet startups, eShare Technologies and eAssist Global Solutions. Sold to a public company in 1999, eShare was a highly successful company that developed chat, bulletin board, and customer service software for AOL, Lycos, and others. Their other company, eAssist, was much less successful and was sold in 2004. The founders' most recent company seems to be following a more propitious path. In March 2006, Goowy was reported to have over 100,000 registered users. Goowy has also received funding from Dallas Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban, who infuses both capital and star-power to the company.
