Techvibes first reported on this possibility a week ago. This is Notesolution’s first acquisition.

StudyMonkey is launched in September 2010 by two entrepreneurial University of Waterloo graduates, Vance Lee and Anson Kao.

Notesolution launched Sept 2010 and was founded by Jack Tai, Kevin Wu and Jackey Li.
