Apple Acquires Chomp, App Search Engine Startup Co-Founded By CTO Cathy Edwards, For $50 Million
By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)
Chomp was co-founded by Cathy Edwards. She is the CTO of Chomp, leading the engineering team to build the “proprietary algorithm [that] learns the functions and topic of apps”.
Edwards blogged on Women 2.0 about Technical Tips for Early-Stage Startup CTOs last year. She has also been an active role model for entrepreneurs and technical women in our community, leading a Founder Friday in San Francisco and participating at the last two Women 2.0 Startup Weekends as a judge of the final presentations.
