Quebec City based Poly9 group acquired by Apple

Techcrunch is reporting that Quebec City based Poly9 group has been acquired by apple. Details are thin and it looks like the team has gone dormant.

It will be interesting to find out exactly what has transacted in this case. Just last night I was telling David that Quebec City is consistently underrated for startup potential in Canada.

We have been tracking Poly9 since they added themselves to the startupindex.
