BRUSSELS, Belgium - Dec. 11, 2008 - Softkinetic S.A., the leading 3D gesture recognition software provider, today announced that it has been named one of the three best overall companies by Europe Unlimited’s European Venture Summit. Softkinetic was invited to participate based on its previous honor of being named best overall company at the Benelux Venture Forum this past March.

"Softkinetic was evaluated twice to be amongst the top three ICT companies in the past nine months,” said William Stevens, CEO, Europe Unlimited. “In March 2008 at the Benelux Venture Forum where 50 high-tech Benelux companies competed and now on December 1, 2008 at the European Venture Summit where it was selected in the top three amongst 50 of the best IC technology companies from across Europe. We heard great feedback from investors on the company and its technology.”

Europe Unlimited was founded in 1998 and over the past 10 years has been dedicated to giving resources to technology entrepreneurs, corporations, investors and researches so they can sustain their businesses. EVS formed from Europe Unlimited’s desire to increase the presence of European start-ups and began offering them the important introductions to international investors and corporations.

“EVS gave us the opportunity to network with venture firms, business analysts and other entrepreneurs, all critical to our growth and development as a young company,” said Michel Tombroff, CEO, Softkinetic S.A. “As a rapidly growing high-technology company, the recognition of our recent achievements from the international venture community help us reach our goal of creating new immersive and intuitive applications for the public.”

Along with their recent participation at EVS, Softkinetic will be attending the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas January 8-11, 2009. At CES they will be demonstrating their advanced gesture recognition applications based on their iisuTM technology.
