Wal-Mart acquired Kosmix for over $300 million in April 2011. If there was a contract that required the founders to stay at Wal-Mart, it must have expired because they have left the company. Venky Harinarayan and Anand Rajaraman said that they are leaving @WalmartLabs to take some time off. The Kosmix team at @WalmartLabs will now report to Jeremy King, the CTO of Walmart’s e-commerce business.
