Following on the success of the Startup Storm series, Genius Incubator hosted “Startup Storm” on 16th January at Google Campus – a unique networking event for innovative technology startups. This time the guest speaker was Taras Filatov, the founder of QuickBlox.
He talked about the company’s success, finances, products and growth plans and answered the questions from other start up founders. In addition to serving its developer community QuickBlox plans to focus on enterprise business. He stated that QuickBlox’s mBaas & as a communication services modules has a huge potential to deliver customised cost effective solutions to the unified communications market. Quickblox is already well established with the developer community with millions of API calls and end users. QuickBlox offers a variety of communications solutions for developers and enterprises that will save time and money and will help to make successful any app.
The atmosphere was quite informal and we had a time to socialise and listen to fresh mind ideas. Stay with us and we’ll keep you updated about the latest news and events from QuickBlox.
2013 is ending and it is now time for us at QuickBlox to reflect and say thanks.
You have helped us create a platform that leverages developers’ time and helps to build apps that matter.
There are hundreds of apps using QuickBlox that make us really proud. It is now being used by Irish Police to push photos of missing children to police officers. Unilever uses QuickBlox to boost employee collaboration. Liverpool FC and ManCity FC apps help soccer fans to engage and do useful things together. Barclays uses QuickBlox for accessible navigation. Another project in development now is literally going to save lives - stay tuned for a very interesting release in early ’14.
Back in 2011 we were the first among cloud backends to launch Chat and in 2013 we (first again) have launched Video calling for iOS and Android. It is your requests and feedback that have shaped the platform into a cloud communication backend. It is a fun and rewarding journey and we are grateful to all who has supported QuickBlox and look forward to build even more great things for you and with you in 2014.
Here is to 2014, the year of cloud communication.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
