The Ensygnia team is making New York its temporary home for much of the month of October. In what is an exceptionally busy time for the Onescan team, co-founders Matt Deacon and Richard H Harris are both taking to the New York stage this month. But Broadway fans can rest easy - neither of them will be singing. Matt is first up, when he speaks in the "rising stars" showcase of the Founders' Forum event in the first week of October. In front of a stellar audience of private investors, VC companies, IT and Internet entrepreneurs, and successful founders, Matt gets a chance to tell the crowd about Ensygnia and why Onescan will be the next big thing.
The invitation to speak at the event came direct from Henry Lane-Fox, one of the founders of the Forum and brother to Martha Lane-Fox of Last Minute dotcom fame. Henry said that one of the last UK companies to speak at the New York FF event in the rising stars section was the team at Raspberry Pi - the guys behind the credit-card sized computer that plugs into a TV. We're sure Matt will get the same enthusiastic reaction enjoyed by the Raspberry Pi team.
Later in October it's Richard's turn to take centre stage. Richard is speaking at the NFC and Mobile Money Summit organised by our friends at the GSM Association - the world trade body for the mobile network operator community. Richard is making a presentation in the conference session on "innovation in Mobile Retail Point of Sale - you can expect him to reference our integration work with Verifone GlobalBay.
Richard is also taking part in a panel discussion on the topic where he will be alongside senior execs from PayPal and Groupon among others.
Ensygnia is also exhibiting and demonstrating Onescan in New York at the summit - showing the delegates how we help to turn looking into buying in less than ten seconds.
While in New York, both Matt and Richard also have a series of meetings with potential investors and distributors of Onescan so all in all, a high flying time awaits. Whisper it quietly, but the end of the month sees them in Silicon Valley on the West Coast, but we do need them back here in the UK between times.
