Finnish Chabla, a service connecting the deaf and interpreters for global communication, has won this year’s European E-commerce Entrepreneurial Award.

Chabla walked away with the prize from this year’s Global E-commerce Summit hosted by Ecommerce Europe in Barcelona, Spain. The company’s unique business model captured 66 per cent of the audience votes, followed by Zoot representing the Czech Republic (22 per cent) and Italy’s Martha’s Cottage (12 per cent).

Chabla enables deaf people to make phone calls with the help of an interpreter. To know more about how it works, read our feature from February here.

The service was created by Signmark Productions and IT services firm CGI Finland.
