BARCELONA – 5 September 2012 – White Bull Summits, champions of European innovation, and OPINATOR, an artificial intelligence service that creates interactions between brands and consumers that benefit both of them, announced today that OPINATOR has been named a finalist for the 2012 Bully Awards, which honour Europe’s leading technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) companies.
A total of sixty deserving European firms were selected from a pool of hundreds of nominated European TMT companies. A complete list of the 2012 White Bull Summits Bully Award finalists may be viewed at White Bull Finalists.
“This year’s finalists were selected on the basis of excellence in innovation, the promise of growth, and the potential to weather the changes and challenges inherent in the TMT sector,” said Farley Duvall, Founder and CEO of White Bull Summits. “The applicants were incredibly strong this year – a clear indication of the wealth of innovation coming out of Europe.”
“We’re honoured to be named as a Bully Award finalist, and to be recognized as one of the leading TMT companies in Europe,” stated Antonio Rodríguez, OPINATOR CO-Founder and CEO. “OPINATOR covers a basic necessity of every organisation: the need to build relevant and profitable interactions with consumers. Since our launch a few months ago, we have experienced tremendous growth and expanded into Europe, America and Africa as a result of our well-focused service and execution. We are in target to achieve global coverage by the end of the year”.
The finalists fall into three categories:
- Yearlings: firms that seek or have received angel/seed rounds or equivalent; classic start-ups
- Young Bulls: firms that seek or have received Series A financing; early stage companies
- Longhorns: post Series A firms; growth stage companies
“We’re searching for the ‘wily beast’ at the heart of each firm, and have carefully selected this year’s finalists based on business proposition, market strategy, technological solutions and understanding of customer needs,” added Duvall.
White Bull Summits conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2012 Bully Awards finalist list.
