2019 has started and we already know it is going to be a very special year for us. In January we have secured a two million Euro investment from DayOne Capital and PortfoLion Ventures to develop enterprise chatbots and to expand our business to Central Europe and Southeast Asia. We did not rest for a sec, instead, we found a great new colleague, Péter Illésy who will represent our interests in Poland as a Business Development Manager. Péter has experience in product management and business development, and knows the Polish market very well, too. With his collaboration, our plan is to grow faster in the CEE region.
At the end of January Ákos and Zoli visited Warsaw, held several talks and meetings and discussed with prospective clients and partners. Talk-A-Bot also visited the Embassy of Hungary and at last but not least – as a Microsoft co-sell partner – the local office of Microsoft.

Next to Poland, our second main target country is Germany. In Berlin, we have negotiated with potential partners and held a successful product presentation in the center of one of the biggest global companies, Deutsche Post DHL. To imagine how determined we are: the unstoppable duo of Ákos and Zoli were able to manage to get from Berlin to Bonn after they missed their flight (note: big thanks to the great railway network between the two).
