Grooveshark co-founder Josh Greenberg, a pioneer in Gainesville’s student startup movement, was found dead in his bed Sunday by his girlfriend in the house they shared. He was 28.
Lori Greenberg, his mother, said Monday he had no health problems and she was told by police who investigated Sunday night that there was no evidence of foul play, injuries or drugs.
At its peak, Grooveshark had 40 million users. Greenberg started the company when he was 19 in 2006.
On April 30, 2015, Grooveshark shut down as part of a settlement between the service and Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and Warner Music Group. The companies sued Grooveshark for copyright violations.
