BuyWithMe,Inc. was incorporated in 2009 and is headquartered in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Buy With Me is backed by Matrix Partners. This group, founded in 1977, has invested in a number of technological areas, including internet, mobile, communications, and software industries. The company is going through a very rough patch and after failing to raise the funding it needed to stay afloat, rumors about a possible takeover by Gilt Groupe have emerged.
