Remember the Nabaztag Wifi Rabbit that wakes you up with your favorite RSS feeds? It’s a French company started by my friend french entrepreneur Rafi Haladjian. I found it very innovative, creative and futuristic. Rafi had a vision of many wifi connected objects in our houses, the Rabbit was just a proof of concept.
Unfortunately it might become one of those cases when the entrepreneur is right too early and gets out of funding, add the recession times to that and Violet, the company behind the Nabaztag just filed for bankruptcy according to the French blog Journal du Geek (french).
Any company interested in continuing the rabbit adventures can make an offer until September 4th to buy parts or the whole of the company to continue its activity that generated 2.25 million euros in 2008.
I am sad for Rafi and his team and I hope an investor is found in the next 3 weeks.
