Ticonderoga Ventures Announces Yammer to Present at the Social Media Conference in Miami on January 22-23, 2009

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 30, 2008) - Ticonderoga Ventures, Inc. announces that Mr. David Schwartz, Vice President of Legal and Corporate Development at Yammer Inc., will present at the Social Networking Conference in Miami.

Mr. Schwartz will discuss unique methods of business and enterprise social networking.

The Social Networking Conference will take place on January 22-23, 2009 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. It is the leading business convention for the social networking and social media industry. The event covers social media technologies and also discusses enterprise business applications.

Executives from the following industries will be attending the event: Social Media, Social Networking, Mobile Telecommunications, Internet/Mobile Payment Processing, Venture Capital, Software, Interactive Marketing firms and others. A list of companies that have attended previous events can be found on the website.

Yammer is an enterprise communications tool enabling employees to collaborate and discuss ideas in real time, thereby flattening the organization and increasing productivity and value. Yammer also serves as a company directory in which every employee has a profile and as a company knowledge-base where past conversations are archived and easily searched.

Unlike traditional enterprise tools which must be installed by the company's IT department, anyone in a company can start their Yammer network and begin inviting colleagues. This means that Yammer can spread virally through a company like a consumer social network. At the same time, Yammer ensures the privacy of each network by limiting access to those with a valid company email address. The model is similar to Facebook's beginnings as a college social network, when students had to validate a college email to join their college network. Yammer then offers a suite of advanced usage and security tools to corporations which elect to administer their company's network.

This press release may contain forward-looking statements, particularly as related to the business plans of the company, within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Sections 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are subject to the safe harbor created by these sections. Actual results may differ materially from the company's expectations and estimates.
