It's turning into a great month here at HulloMail. We ended April and began May with our BlackBerry App being featured app on BlackBerry App World, which resulted in a surge in registrations especially from our 83xx and 85xx users.
We're pleased to announce we've been selected as a finalist for the Red Herring 100 Europe Awards, which honours the 100 most innovative and promising technology start-ups from across Europe.
Red Herring analysed hundreds of cutting-edge companies and technologies and selected those who they felt are positioned to grow at an explosive rate. The resulting two hundred finalists have been invited to attend an Awards dinner in Paris, France on 27 May 2010, where the Top 100 winners will be announced.
Andy Munarriz, our founder and CEO: “Since we launched HulloMail to consumers a year ago, we have seen a massive increase in appetite and downloads of our apps for BlackBerry, Android and iPhone. Ultimately, we have created a service that suits the way people want to interact today – quickly, without fuss and, ideally, for free. Therefore, to be recognised by Red Herring as one of the most innovative technology start-ups is amazing and I look forward to hearing the outcome of the Awards on 27 May.”
"This year was especially difficult," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "Despite the global economic situation, there were many great companies producing really innovative and amazing products that we had a difficult time narrowing the pool and selecting the finalists. HulloMail shows great promise therefore deserves to be among the Finalists. Now we’re faced with the difficult task of selecting the Top 100 winners of Red Herring Europe award. We know that this year’s crop will grow into some amazing companies that are sure to go far."
Wish us luck next week!
