Wow, we are delighted to announce big news today! Every Year the World Economic Forum in Davos awards the Technology Pioneers, a highly selective group of young companies where the World Economic Forum thinks that they will contribute to improving the state of the world in the next years. Past years companies include Google, Mozilla and Paypal. Today, we proudly announce that amiando was selected as a “Technology Pioneer 2010” by the World Economic Forum as the only company from Germany. Other winners include social media companies like Twitter and Playfish.
It’s a great honor for us that the World Economic Forum recognizes the big potential in social media event ticketing and to receive this award! We believe that personal meetings and meetups are crucial for communication in our society. Supporting all the thousands and millions worldwide meetings with the amiando tools is our vision and our contribution to make the world a little bit better than today.
Candidates for this prestigious award are nominated by the world’s leading technology experts and are judged by a distinguished panel appointed by the World Economic Forum. Twenty-six companies were selected this year for their accomplishments as innovators and for their development of technologies expected to have a deep impact on global business and society. Technology Pioneers are invited to join the World Economic Forum community and to participate in the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting to be held in Davos, Switzerland in January, 2010.
A jury, which consists of 58 global technology experts, evaluated hundreds candidates from around the world.
The 2010 class covers four continents, with 18 of the 26 companies hailing from the US and the rest from Brazil, Germany, India, Israel, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom. Previous Technology Pioneers include Google, Mozilla and Paypal.
“amiando is very proud to be recognized by the World Economic Forum and to be one of the Technology Pioneers 2010.” says Felix Haas, our CEO.
Thank you very much all customers, partners, friends and amiandos and amiandos for all your help! We look forward to being in Davos and to contribute to the World Economic Forum community!
