MANCX PRESS RELEASE: 23 September, 2011, London, Helsinki and Stockholm

Mancx, the online knowledge market, is delighted to announce winning the prestigious Arctic15 competition yesterday.

Close to 400 startup enthusiasts came together in Helsinki to witness and judge fifteen pitches from the most cutting-edge startup companies from all over the Nordic and Baltic regions at Arctic15. After rigorous debate and discussions between the jury members, Mancx from Sweden, was announced the Arctic 15 Winner, and the startup with the greatest growth and success potential of the fifteen competing companies. In addition to being crowned the winner, Mancx took home the prize of 10 000 euros.

Mancx’ win comes hot on the heels of the launch of the Mancx Matchmaker at TechCrunch Disrupt, which enables users to match business questions on Mancx with contacts in their LinkedIn network.

Antti Vilpponen, editor and founder of Arctic Startup, the biggest technology website reviewing and reporting on technology startups and growth entrepreneurship from the Nordic and Baltic countries, as well as the organiser of Arctic15 says: ““It was really exciting to watch the jury debate on the winner – the quality of presentations and companies was mind-blowingly high, but Mancx came on top as the clear winner in the end. Not only does the idea have a lot of potential, but so far the execution and approach was the best of the 15 companies.”

Henrik Dillman, CEO and co-founder of Mancx comments: “We are very excited by this win as it validates our business idea and confirms our growth potential by high-profile investors and business veterans. We are already starting to deliver on our growth potential with the recent unveiling of the Mancx Matchmaker, which is just the first of a number of features and apps we are launching.”
