2019 has started and we already know that it is going to be a very special year for our chatbot company. That’s because in January, we have secured a two million Euro investment from DayOne Capital and PortfoLion Ventures. We will use this investment to develop enterprise chatbots and to grow our business to Central Europe and Southeast Asia.
We did not rest for a second. Instead, we found a great new colleague, Péter Illésy, who will greatly help to develop our chatbot company: Péter represents our interests in Poland as a Business Development Manager. He has experience in product management and business development. In addition, he knows the Polish market very well. With his collaboration, our plan is to grow faster in the CEE region and develop chatbots.
At the end of January, Ákos and Zoli visited Warsaw. They held several talks and meetings and had discussions with prospective clients and partners there. Talk-A-Bot, our enterprise chatbot company, also went to the Embassy of Hungary. Last but not least – as a Microsoft co-sell partner – we visited the local office of Microsoft.
Besides Poland, our second main target country is Germany. In Berlin, we have negotiated with potential partners and held a successful product presentation in the centre of one of the biggest global companies, Deutsche Post DHL. Finally, a quick story to grasp just how determined we are: the unstoppable duo of Ákos and Zoli managed to get from Berlin to Bonn – after they missed their flight.
(Note: big thanks to the great railway network between the two)
