The Colossal Spider Web of Lycos Alumni
Lycos was one of the dominant companies from the web 1.0 era and at the one point, the search engine and web portal company was the most visited destination on the web.
Lycos made history as the fastest company to ever go public on the NASDAQ and was later acquired by Terra Networks for $12.5B. If you are looking to hear more of the story behind Lycos, you can listen to our podcast interview with Bob Davis, the Founder & CEO of the company.
It may come as no surprise that several of its former employees have gone on to make an impact on the Boston tech sector in some way shape or form. Many of them have gone on to executive roles at other prominent tech companies, have started their own, or have become board members at other tech companies in the area. We've compiled a slideshow of 20+ alumni to showcase what they are up to now.
For this slideshow, we used the following criteria:
- Must be based in the Boston area.
- Tenure at Lycos for at least two years.
- Currently a founder, executive, or board member.
