The acquisition and potential IPO of GoNabit makes Kipp wish we’d invested in an uber successful internet startup, like those in this list.

When GoNabit was acquired by Living Social earlier this month, many, including Kipp, wondered whether it was too early to sell. We wondered if the UAE’s pioneer group buying site would have been better off without its US counterpart calling all the shots. Then just a few days ago, news emerged that GoNabit, would be part of a $1 billion IPO…not too bad. It kind of makes Kipp wish we had a couple of successful internet startups to our name. And as we keep reading about articles of the ballooned-up valuations going for the likes of Farmville and Twitter, we thought we’d take a look at the other internet startups that GoNabit keeps company as success stories.
