“Softkinetic was evaluated twice to be amongst the top three ICT companies in the past nine months,” said William Stevens, CEO of Europe Unlimited. “In March 2008 at the Benelux Venture Forum where 50 high-tech Benelux companies competed and now on December 1, 2008 at the European Venture Summit where it was selected in the top three amongst 50 of the best IC technology companies from across Europe. We heard great feedback from investors on the company and its technology.”

Softkinetic’s CEO Michel Tombroff added: “As a rapidly growing high-technology company, the recognition of our recent achievements from the international venture community help us reach our goal of creating new immersive and intuitive applications for the public.”
