10 OCTOBER 2011, BARCELONA / AMSTERDAM
SummaryTribe of Noise, connecting musicians and business, was announced today as a Young Bull winner of the 2011 Bully Award honouring Europe’s leading technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) companies as presented by White Bull Summits (http://www.whitebull.com), champions of the European innovation ecosystem.
The winners fall into three categories:
- Yearlings: firms that seek or have received angel/seed rounds or equivalent; classic start-ups
- Young Bulls: firms that seek or have received Series A financing; early stage companies
- Longhorns: post Series A firms; growth stage companies
“We’re of course very honoured to be named a 2011 Bully Award winner, and to be recognized as one of the leading TMT companies in Europe,” stated Hessel van Oorschot, CEO at Tribe of Noise. “It’s validating to be named a winner for this prestigious award, and we accept and share it with the entire Tribe of Noise community.”
Tribe of Noise connects musicians and business online by focussing and bypassing the music publishing industry.
“The White Bull judges very carefully reviewed seed-stage, early-stage and growth-stage companies, and selected the winning companies they believe have demonstrated clear potential for further growth and a high probability for exit in the next few years,” added Duvall.
White Bull has a successful track record in identifying Europe’s leading TMT companies. Eight of the 2010 Bully Award winners identified by White Bull were acquired in the past year including BuyVIP (acquired by Amazon), JayCut (acquired by RIM), Q-go (acquired by RightNow Technologies), Severa Corp (acquired by Visma Group), SunglassesShop.com (acquired by Glasses Direct), Ubitexx (acquired by RIM), Vilant Systems Oy (merged RFID activities with Swisscom Auto-ID Services AG), and WatchMouse (acquired by CA Technologies).
