Dial2Do was selected as “most promising company” in the Media and Mobility section at the SVASE Launch: Silicon Valley event this week. We’re absolutely thrilled. This is a prestigious event, with a Blue Chip set of sponsors. Dial2Do was selected to present from 266 applicants vying for 30 coveted demo slots in Next Generation Internet, Computing, Life Sciences, Semiconductors, Acoustics, Media and Mobility categories.
Our CEO Ivan MacDonald presented for 10 minutes to an audience comprising Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists and Entrepreneurs. The audience selects the winning company in each category.
Official announcement here.
The feedback from the audience was very positive on our “getting things done, hands-free” message, and of course, the fact that hands-free legislation kicks in from July 1st in California, and will then follow in other US states, provided great context. In California alone, there are an estimated 23 Million Licensed drivers who will be affected by this new law, and as reported by Plantronics, many of these are unaware of the consequences of non-compliance. We’d encourage each and every one of them to sign up with Dial2Do!
As for our win, we’re delighted, and as they might say in the Valley: AWE-SOME! 🙂
