Nomadesk Named Finalist in the Eurecan European Venture Contest in Barcelona

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - Nomadesk, developer of the easiest and most secure on-demand file sharing software, today announced it will present in the final of the Eurecan European Venture Contest as part of 25 high tech companies selected from over 750 participants throughout 2009. ICT, Cleantech and Healthcare companies have competed to win the approval of international investors and make it through to a Top 100, before the Final 25 were selected to compete in the final in Barcelona on 14-15th December.

"We are very excited to advance in this competition," said Nomadesk CEO Filip Tack. "Surfacing to the top 25 out of 750 companies validates our mission to bring secure and easy file sharing to SMBs globally."

The 2009 edition involved 10 European locations across Europe in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the UK. The winner will receive recognition as one of the most innovative companies at an international level and a prize of 90,000 euro. Many of the previous finalists have since successfully raised capital and expanded their business.

Charles Van Costenobel, Eurecan - Corporacción CAN Capital Semilla / Negocios Emergentes, comments, "The Eurecan European Venture Contest proves that good technologies will always emerge and succeed, regardless of market conditions. It does not have to be a new blockbuster drug or the next Skype to find investment and development partners. The applications to the EEVC are examples of everyday processes such as the diagnosis of disease or the generation of energy -- we continue to need them and anything that improves their delivery will succeed."

William Stevens, CEO of Europe Unlimited, commented, "The Eurecan European Venture Contest is a true celebration of high tech entrepreneurs in Europe. All presenting companies at the Summit have earned their place through impressing investors across Europe and this brings together a critical mass of the most talented emerging businesses."
