Slack acquisition? Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft or Remains Independent

 

Slack, the wildly popular chat app for the workplace is gaining attention from large entreprises including Amazon, Google, Facebook, Salesforce, and Microsoft.

Bloomberg originally reported Amazon’s interest in a Slack acquisition, with a potential bid of $US9 billion or more. Amazon is aiming to challenge it’s competitors: Amazon, Google, Facebook, Salesforce, and Microsoft. With Slack, Amazon will directly challenge GSuite (Google), Office 365 (Microsoft) and Quip (Salesforce).

Hence, Slack could easily be sold for a high price. However, Slack CEO, Stewart Butterfield has signalled repeatedly that he is keeping the company independent.
