Transinsight wins futureSAX VC-Forum for best company

Dresden - Germany, October 17th, 2007 - FutureSAX invited venture capitalists and entrepreneurs from all over Germany to Dresden under the motto "Lift Off with Venture Capital - Emphasis on Technology and Environment."

In front of 80 guests, among them 30 investors, the jury selected Transinsight with its software technology for knowledge-based information searches from seven finalists as the winner of the most promising investment. „The jury choose the Transinsight team because of their excellent business concept and investment, as well as their convincing presentation“, says futureSAX representative Kerstin Trautmann. She goes on to say: „the Businessplan-Wettbewerb Sachsen GmbH congratulates the winner for this outstanding success.“ “We are proud our concept is regarded as outstanding by top-class investors“, says Dr. Michael R. Alvers, CEO of Transinsight GmbH. He continues: “We created software with the potential to revolutionize information searching. Themed “Together we Search, Think, and Write“, we raise searching to a new level. We do not rank search results, the user does! This fosters democracy and allows companies and others to save plenty of time, which then becomes available for other relevant tasks.“ Mark Miller, CEO of CatCap and a member of the jury, is convinced that close cooperation between the university and new high-tech companies in Dresden will lead to success. “Transinsight GmbH, with its brand new search paradigm, is well-positioned in the rapidly growing information handling and knowledge management market,“ says Miller.
