Smile it’s Monday! MoMoVan Season Opener: September 12, 2011
Meet CEO Kosta ChatziSpiros from LinguaComm and hear how they secured $693,225 from the Canada Media Fund's Experimental Stream to fund the smartphone language app Supiki
Inspired by the belief that the personal computer was a "game changer", Kosta's career in technology marketing began at college in 1987. Since then, he has consistently taken on challenges involving successfully bringing innovative products or services to market. He is recognized for executing winning business strategies, rapidly building multi-disciplinary teams and achieving breakthrough results. Kosta received an MBA from Royal Roads University in Victoria and was awarded the MBA Leadership Award.
LinguaComm is a classic start-up company having developed the 1st app that lets you have a real English conversation on your smartphone. The app actually listens to what you say and responds accordingly. The company has been bootstrapped from the start without VC funding. Kosta and Julie Zilber (Linguacomm President and Imagineer-in-Chief) combined their respective marketing, business and new media expertise to obtain CMF Experimental Stream and IRAP funding to help fund development. Learn how Linguacomm successfully navigated the process for obtaining funding with favourable terms and the valuable lessons learned from the process.
We will start with one entrepreneurial pitch to start the event after some social networking.
