Naveen Selvadurai is leaving foursquare

Naveen Selvadurai is one of the co-founders of the popular location based service foursquare.

He has just announced that he is leaving the company to work on something new.

He spoke about his departure from foursquare:

going forward, i’m going to continue to be connected to the company: i’m on the board, i’ll still be advising, and i’m obviously going to be the single most vocal user. but the spring is time for things that are new, and i realize that i have a desire to do something new as well. i’m not sure about my exact next steps, but i’ll probably get back to what i love most – being an entrepreneur, learning and building new things.

Foursquare has been massively successful and is one of the most popular mobile apps around. They have been making some cool new developments with explore feature which has become much more relevant for their users than just checking-in at places.
