  • Spotify achète une start-up française Niland

On ne compte plus les rachats stratégiques opérés par les grandes firmes de la tech au cours des derniers mois, et une chose est claire: ça n'est pas encore près de se calmer.

Le numéro un mondial de l'écoute de musique en ligne Spotify a annoncé mercredi l'acquisition d'une start-up française, Niland, pour son moteur de recherche et ses capacités de recommandations.

Niland avait été incubée à Agoranov, financée par des business angels tels Frederic Monvoisin, Fabrice Dumont (Business Angels), et conseillée par Bruno VanRyb, David Argellies et la start-up Smiirl. Les Parisiens de Niland devront quant à eux déménager pour rejoindre les bureaux new-yorkais de Spotify.

En quatre ans, elle avait développé une approche d'optimisation de la recherche musicale et de la recommandation pour favoriser la découverte de nouveaux talents à écouter.
