About Teqlo

Teqlo is a mashup platform unlike anything else you have seen. We are committed to giving non-technical users the capability to create mashup applications that help them get things done without knowing anything about APIs, coding, and scripting. You simply snap together the pieces to do what you want to do and we'll take care of the rest, or better yet just grab something prebuilt out of the marketplace and go. Web application developers have been building sophisticated services interfaces and protocols into their applications for years as a means of stimulating third party developer activity, we are taking that one step further by enabling non technical users with the capability to drag-and-drop components to a web page and enable reliable communication between services. Through enabling co-creation of process and task automation applications we unleash a wave of new applications that really do represent the way people work, because they are built by the people who use them! Imagine you want to drop sales leads onto a map and then select contacts for daily calls, such as a sales person would do. Maybe you want to automatically notify your preferred customers when you are having a promotion event, or plan an event, or manage employee expenses. Teqlo's breakthrough sequencing methodology and data routing technology enables these and many more user generated applications without the steep learning curve imposed by competing technologies.

Mashup Startup Teqlo Shuts Down After Struggles

Nov 25, 2013

Anne Zelenka Nov. 8, 2007 - 9:08 AM PDT Nov. 8, 2007 - 9:08 AM PDT 15 Comments [qi:011] EXCLUSIVE: Mashup maker startup Teqlo has shut down. This less than four months after VC Peter Rip, then of Teqlo investor Leapfrog Ventures, shared the growing pains Teqlo was suffering after realizing that the world didn’t want yet another do-it-yourself application builder. “Over the next few [weeks] [months] the site will begin to molt,” Rip wrote in a blog posting . “We will shed the mashup cocoon and emerge as a very different butterfly.” And what would that butterfly look like? Web-based workflow, according to Rip. Then-CEO Jeff Nolan moved on during that transition, saying in his blog that : “Teqlo is a fantastic concept and a potentially very disruptive business but it became clear that it needs more time in the oven in order to further develop and, more importantly, package the service.” Nolan eventually surfaced at NewsGator , a maker of enterprise RSS software. But Teqlo apparently couldn’t make itself over into a different butterfly, though a few months seems a very short period in which to do so. By then Rip moved on to Crosslink Capital . Teqlo’s demise comes on the heels of VC firm Kleiner Perkins’ declaration that they won’t fund any more web 2.0 startups. But is it another indication that the web 2.0 bubble is slowly leaking air? Maybe, maybe not. Even in the best of times, many companies fail to find a match between what they’ve built and what customers want to buy. Jacoby Thwaites, founder of Teqlo, has confirmed that the investors had pulled out. Thwaites said, “We had great investors, great people and great technology, but we ran out of time working out what the killer product could be!” Advertisement
