Skype: From Conception to Acquisition

Not most of the people know about Skype’s existence but, I am one of the early adopters of the software ever since it launched in 2003 and today it’s become the most used Voice and Video Application over the Internet.

There have been various ups and down for Skype as a Business and as an application as well, but it still remains popular

Below are some of the important milestones for Skype as a Company:

  • Founded by Niklas Zennstrõm in 2003
  • Ebay buys Skype in 2005
  • 2006: Skype Out is inducted
  • 2010: Skype Raises a $100 Million IPO
