I was presenting today in Turin, Italy, at Europe Unlimited’s venture contest before an international investor and expert panel. At the end of the day I was thrilled to see Tuxera was awarded as the event winner! We are thus among the top 100 companies selected from different events around the Europe during the fall…

During the day I had interesting talks with investors and other entrepreneurs. One of the most positive and energetic persons was undoubtedly Rick Salmon who runs Xelerator out from Oslo, Norway. He answered to those who said you should start from local markets that when a company finds the right focus the market is and must be global. Cannot agree more. Tuxera’s market has been global from day 1.

Update 27.11. Here is a short video clip of the award ceremony and my interview after the event.
