Enterprise mobility solutions firm InfoLogix announced late last week that it will be acquired by Stanley Black & Decker for $61.2 million, according to an email.

Startup Leaders founder Blake Jennelle is headed for New York. Not for a startup—instead, for his muse, he said in a blogpost. But it might not be long until he finds other inspirations. As he puts it the writeup, “my imagination lights up in New York. I’m drawn to create there,” he said. We’ve covered Jennelle for the past two years through a variety of projects he was involved with, including Startup Leaders, MyDunkTank and the Gigabit City Genius Grant. It’s surely a loss for Philly, but our best wishes to Jennelle.
