    The facts

    If you are reading this, you probably already know the good news, and if not, here you have the headline: the Mexican group Desarrolladora Rio Parana has acquired 43% of Zyncro’s shares and so it becomes one of the company’s main shareholders as well as joining its board of directors along with Inspirit and others. You can find all of the related information in the leading Spanish newspapers or various sector specialist websites.

    Given that the information has already been published in the media we will focus on the facts and from Zyncro blog today, we would like to go one step further as a company that boosts corporate communication. Our objective is to express what this new stakeholder reality means to us directly.

    The strategy

    The pinnacle of this process supports one of the company’s main strategies, internationalization. The idea of Zyncro was born in Barcelona around 2008 by Didac Lee who has always had an international vocation and mission: to help companies optimize their internal processes by means of a solution that makes this possible and/or boosts social communication within organizations: an Enterprize Social Network. Now we have an even more international essence about us. The process that began a few months back is now made official thanks to our success in Mexico as well as in all of South America and having awakened an interest in our company within the Parana business group.
    Therefore the objective of our new investors is clear:

    To continue to strengthen our position within the market as the most flexible and adaptable social technological solution responding to the real needs of our clients, to grow our current client base, both in terms of user volumes as well as linking to new business processes, especially via channel sales and overall from a mobile perspective.

    The people

    And for all of this, we rely on a team of people that are dedicated, proactive, and keen to continue giving their very best within a great place to work. They will make the technological consolidation and growth process a reality for the business and structure we initiated over 5 years ago. This new stage will be led by the company’s new CEO Carlos Ramon, a director with a wide range of experience in various sectors, an expert in consolidating organizations in the growth stage and who likes to take a process innovation approach as well as placing trust in employees. As Carlos says, “This is a great opportunity for both the Parana group as well as Zyncro itself to continue creating an attractive and innovative project with huge growth potential and together, we are going to turn the opportunity into a success”.

    As in the life of all young companies, we have endured changes at all levels of the organization and have had to adapt ourselves with the times, so this communication serves not only to transmit our version of the facts but also to thank, from the bottom of our hearts, the work and effort of all of those who have made this milestone possible in the life of Zyncro. You know who you are.

    One of our internal mottos is together #wearestronger. This time we have joined forces with Desarrolladora Rio Parana in order to strengthen everything that Zyncro stands for: commitment, passion, innovation, transparency, communication and collaboration, and that is how we’ll do it.

    Will you join us for this new stage?

    Zyncro closes a second financing round 

    Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

    Once again, we’re pleased to be able to share with you some good news for Zyncro that accompanies the start of this new year. On this occasion, we’re happy to announce that Zyncro closed a second round of financing for the sum of 1.6 million euro.

    This figure, as well as enabling us to continue developing Zyncro as an enterprise social network, also holds a special value for us as it symbolizes our investors’ growing confidence. In particular, I’m referring to Active Venture Partners, which has incorporated as a Zyncro shareholder for the first time in this second round.

    Active Venture Partners, one of the main international venture capital firms in Spain, joins current shareholders “La Caixa”, through the fund Caixa Capital TiC; Cabiedes & Partners; Perennius (Spanish); Aniol and XMS; as well as the Dutch firm Nordhold.

    For Zyncro and its parent group Inspirit, the backing of our investors is a guarantee and recognition of the company’s positive progress, whose growth has been unstoppable since its outset in 2008.

    What’s more, we’re delighted to hear the words of the co-founder and managing partner of Active Venture Partners, Ricard Söderberg, who on assessing this investment has referred to Zyncro as the new trend in social networking for companies following on after Facebook. “Zyncro is a leader in the concept of Enterprise 2.0, since its role as an Enterprise Social Network improves internal collaboration and knowledge management in companies”, says Ricard.

    A vision we’re committed to 100%!

    As we mentioned, this new financing will be used to boost the company’s two priorities: developing the product and continuing its expansion process.

    In 2012, we want to be even more zyncronized than ever and offer you the best in your Enterprise Social Network!
