Word is out that Skype will acquire Flatiron-based startup GroupMe, who makes an application that enables private group messaging on mobile devices. Interestingly, Skype is itself in the process of being acquired by Microsoft. More on GroupMe from Skype’s CEO:

“The GroupMe team has created an incredibly sticky group messaging experience that works across mobile devices and platforms, making this a perfect addition to the voice, video and text products in the Skype family,” said Tony Bates, Skype’s Chief Executive Officer.

The acquisition price of the one year old company was not disclosed.

Congratulations to another local startup making it to the next level!
