Ingenio co-founder and e-commerce executive Scott Faber was riding in a New York City cab, eavesdropping on the driver's animated cell phone conversation when he was struck with an idea. The company sold out to AT&T in 2007. Alpine Investors, a private investment group, acquired Ingenio from AT&T in May 2013.
