360Visualizer bags money and fame
Finnish digital sales and marketing solution 360Visualizer has been named the Best European Startup by the European Trade Association for Business Angels (EBAN).
The company also landed half-a-million-euro investment from business angels. Other distributed prizes were the Best Startup in Spain and the Best Startup in Andalucía, which were worth 450 000 euros and 200 000 respectively.
360Visualizer is a cloud-based solution that enables hoteliers to utilise their visual content and increase revenue through customer engagement. Fees are SaaS-based (Software as a Service), and hoteliers pay a monthly usage fee for the software.
“We are extremely pleased with this award and the significant investment,” says CEO of 360Visualizer Kimmo Kaitala. “The investment allows us to make a growth surge and speed up our plans with the help of an experienced investor.”
360Visualizer’s solution is used by global hotel brands, including the likes of Radisson Blu and Holiday Inn.
