Nominate Poken for a Crunchie Award! Ever heard of the Crunchies award? It’s ‘the Oscar for the technology world’, to cite the organizers. It is an annual competition and award ceremony co-hosted by TechCrunch, GigaOm and VentureBeat.
Poken has won the Swiss ICT “Newcomer” Award for 2009!
The Swiss internet and tech community is a lot like like Switzerland itself: small, diverse, intense and filled with global talents in all fields. So, it feels pretty darn good to be recognized in this growing economy and industry sector- according to the NY times, Switzerland has now passed the US as the most competitive business environment on earth. We’ll let you agree, ponder, or debate that face with the fine folks over in new york, but in the meantime, we’re gonna bask in the glow of this one a little bit.
