QUOTE OF THE MONTH

"I love this watch, my son loves this watch. Thank you so much for your excellent product and customer service."

  Marta M., hereO Family customer
Ridgewood, NY
Hi <<First Name>>,

I know, it's only been 29 days since our last update, but I just couldn't wait to share this months debrief with you :-) With every newsletter we issue, the reader count is growing, feedback is increasingly encouraging, and the synergy loop of the resulting dialogues from this forum (save for a few keyboard-shy readers) continue to overwhelm us with all the motivation we need to push forward, think big, and keep our focus on closing the gap with the future. Basically what I am saying is - thank you, <<First Name>>, for reading this far. Keep going if I may suggest, your 3 update digest is just a glance away.

 
Happy reading!
Gill Mendelson, CEO


Update #1
Sangria and Tapas in Barcelona

If you are in town, come meet with our Executive team at MWC!
Event season is here and with it lots of exciting conferences and shows, some on-going and others around the corner. We will most likely still be at MWC by the time you read this - if you are too, be sure to reach out and connect with our executive team. Strategic partnerships? We are interested. Distribution opportunities? Definitely. Just a friendly chat over sangria and tapas? We can do that! If you do miss us however, we'll have another opportunity at the upcoming London Wearable Tech Show (courtesy of our partners at Skyhook). Allon Gladstone, hereO Co-founder and HQ COO will be on stage to demo our GPS Watch for kids. Allon will also have a special "just one more thing" announcement to share as well, but you will either have to come to the event to hear about it, or wait (eagerly?) for your next investor debrief! 


Update #2
NB-IoT Prototype

Deutsche Telekom and hereO lead the global race to NB-IoT!
The world's first Narrow Band IoT prototype! Yep, right there, that is hereO CTO Eli Shemesh at the Hub:Raum offices in Berlin just as he closes the circuit on this bad boy. It might not look like much now, but this little piece of hardware is going to completely change the face of IoT. Fun fact: The elite group of 24 startups from around the globe participating in this program are the first to work on an NB-IoT product. hereO was the first of that group to deploy, so that would mean that...(eyes wide open here!).

Anyway, first in the world or not, hereO is grateful for the privilege and opportunity extended by Deutsche Telekom to participate in such an amazing initiative! And stay tuned, in three weeks time we will be presenting this master piece to 200 or so Deutsche Telekom stake holders, partners, distributors, and sales executives. No pressure of course!


Update #3
Pro(in)Motion

Jonathan Meister, hereO VP Strategic Partnerships makes his move to the top!
 
It's not everyday that we entertain a C-level promotion and this one in particular calls for a special celebration! Jonathan, previously VP Strategic Partnerships, now Chief Operations Officer of our IL site, has time and again demonstrated his capacity to drive a spark of an idea to shape shifting outcomes. He is everything one could expect from a talented business developer, only more, much more. Actually I would say like 5 talented business developers more, and come to think of it, a handful of Operation guys too. Maybe 2-3 Sales executives and, oh let's see, an experienced logistics professional, or two. Yeah, and while we are at it, might as well throw some PR wizardry in there. So where does that leave us, 10 or so karate chopping employees for the price of one? What a bargain!
 
Welcome Jonathan Meister to the C-Suite ranks of the hereO Family!

SERIES B
This bit is for those of you who are thinking right now, Can I get in on this???

Yes you can! hereO has launched its Series B and is looking for new partners to support its transition from local start up to global wearable IoT enterprise.
Update: Ok, we're good on the funds. But then again, with more funds come more results. And we love results.
