Three years after launching the company, we’re catching press in New York, Chicago and last week: San Francisco & Palo Alto aka Bay Area just to name a few. That’s obviously great news and a relentless team effort. A few days after the publication below we got a call from local Antwerp press too. It seems you need to score overseas to disrupt the local media overhere.
So it’s with pride I’m sharing this press article in the San Francisco Examiner (web) and paper. As a personal note to all entrepreneurs out there who got virtually kicked, bashed and looked-down by the big boys:
Saying NAY to naysayers, does pay off.
(And thanks a lot Filip De Clerck & Elisabeth van Nueten for the San Francisco snapshots!)
In 2010 and 2011, I took my keynote presentation and a lot of convincing power to Club Brugge, Anderlecht even Antwerp and other Belgian football teams. I told them a story on mobile and the future importance for a club, the fans and the sponsors to focus on this new form of media. They seemed to like it. Yes, they listened. Yes, they even wanted all the info, my presentation, every piece of it. But, to never hear from them again. I was disappointed. Especially when I had to hear about the painful stories and excuses on how hard the football world is. “No budgets, no decision power, even…no interest from advertisers and so on.” I needed a tissue to wipe away the tears from all this sadness and went back home without a deal. Life sucked.
