Tobii Technology Awarded the SIME Grand Prize 2010

Tobii Technology was awarded the prestigious SIME Grand Prize 2010. SIME, northern Europe’s largest Internet and digital business opportunity event, handed out the SIME prizes on Thursday evening, November 18, 2010.

Tobii Technology was the jury’s overall favorite and received the Grand Prize for being the company with the most innovative technology concept or online consumer offering. Tobii’s ability to show impressive year-to-year growth and its strong potential to become an extremely large corporation were also instrumental in convincing the judges.

Sven Chetkovich, CFO at Tobii Technology, participated in the event and commented,

“The SIME Awards originated in 1996 and are today a prominent influence in the world of IT, Internet and technology. Last year’s Grand Prize went to Apple iPhone, and other high-achieving companies like Spotify and MySQL have been recognized for their achievements. It is therefore a tremendous honor for us at Tobii to receive this award.”

SIME Awards salute those entrepreneurs and companies in the Internet industry who demonstrate exceptional innovativeness and growth. The jury has selected companies that can be sound role models and sources of inspiration for other Nordic online businesses.

Tobii cinched third place in the category Rising Star of the North in 2009.
