At long last the silence is broken. Our sincerest apologies for being missing in action these past few weeks. There has, nonetheless, been much ado about – everything.
Not least of which, our Sales team is expanding!
Our latest press release has gone out this morning and is already creating a huge amount of buzz, especially on Twitter! This mostly thanks to TechCrunch Europe and US, who has picked it up right away (link to the article to be found here).
We are happy to announce that Swisscom Ventures, the corporate venture arm of Swisscom AG – Switzerland’s leading telecom operator, is participating in a $1.8 million round, and will be represented on Poken’s Board of Directors by Dominique Mégret, Head of Swisscom Ventures, a seasoned executive and entrepreneur.
The Swisscom Venture investment and partnership are further validation of Poken’s fast-paced evolution as the market leader in social networking devices. The new pokenEVENT service offering is gaining significant traction in the events and corporate networking space — helping customers such as Adobe, BMW, IBM, Microsoft and Tempo Music host powerful networking events. In addition, event organizers such as PublicisLive — host of the World Economic Forum — have also recently used the pokenEVENT networking platform to help reduce the clutter of business cards and streamline the process for distributing digital materials at their events.
