Customer engagement business Infobip takes top startup award at The Europas
Infobip, a global cloud communications company for business, has been recognized as the hottest business-to-business startup at a European tech industry award show The Europas.
Infobip won the "Hottest SaaS or B2B Startup" category at The Europas, taking place last week at Geffrye Museum of the Home. The company powers enterprises to deliver messages to their customers across any channel, any device, at any time and anywhere in the world.
Earlier this year, Infobip won the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the year award in Croatia, where the company headquarters are, and in May 2019 it was ranked both by enterprises and mobile network operators as the Number 1 A2P Messaging Vendor 2019 worldwide by ROCCO Research.
Its proprietary messaging platform connects to over 800 telecom networks and has the capacity to reach over seven billion devices in 190+ countries.
The Europas are awarded based on thousands of votes gathered from a public vote, which are then combined with industry judges from the venture capital community, major news organizations, and the wider startup arena.
Silvio Kutic, Chief Executive Officer of Infobip, said: “We are honoured to receive this award and to be recognized by the European Tech community. The Europas recognition shows that everybody through the democratization and accessibility of information has an opportunity to build great stories in practically every corner of the world.”
Infobip is a full-stack Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS), with private cloud infrastructure and zero-hop connectivity to telecoms globally.
"Today we are at the forefront of new technologies – conversational UI powered by AI. With IoT, online and offline world are coming together and this will also exponentially grow the number of different ways that people interact with various services. The next frontier for us will be to enable the interactions with services through AR and VR. We are very excited for the times ahead at Infobip," Kutic concluded.
The Europas Awards are in their tenth year of recognizing the quality in the European tech startup scene. The annual event brings together the mid and late stage technology startups, as well as leading investors and media in the EMEA region.
The whole event is curated by The Pathfounder, which was founded by tech journalists Dianne See Morrison and Mike Butcher.
