File sharing expert selected as winner from 168 companies

NomaDesk,, a document collaboration solutions provider, announced today that it was named “Europe’s Most Promising Startup” at the 2009 Innovate! Europe Competition. Organized by the Guidewire Group, the contest identifies the top technology startups in Europe and Israel and helps them accelerate their business internationally while providing them with valuable exposure.

Among the 168 promising startups that competed, NomaDesk stood out due to its potential – excellent technology, strong management team and already successful business model. As the “Europe’s Most Promising Startup,” NomaDesk will spend 3 months in the Guidewire STUDIO, an in-residence business accelerator in the heart of Silicon Valley, where NomaDesk executives will have the opportunity to benefit from high-tech, business and investment expert mentors, to reach new investors and to form strategic partnerships.

"NomaDesk secured the winning nomination from our mentors because the company is already making substantial progress in its efforts to take its business into new markets,” said Chris Shipley, executive director of Innovate! Europe and Chairman of Guidewire Group. “From its current revenue-generating business, we expect NomaDesk to become a brand name in the global market for virtual document sharing and storage."

“NomaDesk is honored to have won this competition, which rewards over 5 years of hard work and innovation, and we are looking forward to further benefiting from Guidewire Group’s strategic advice and guidance.” said Filip Tack, CEO and co-founder of NomaDesk.

The prize was awarded to NomaDesk for its file sharing software solution, which enables geographically dispersed professionals to store files, synchronize, secure, access, transfer, and eventually securely share them from any location, whether on- or off-line.
