San Jose, CA, July 29, 2014 --(PR.com)-- 1World Online, an engagement applications, content, and analytics platform company, today announced the official launch of its international market expansions, and also that the firm received an industry-wide award as a top global company. 1World is launching today 1World Europe and 1World Asia. In related news, 1World has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the Global 100 Companies to Watch.
“It’s an honor to be selected as a top global company as just a three-year old enterprise,” said Alex Fedosseev, CEO and co-founder of 1World, “it shows I think the tremendous value we have created for our partners, and for social research and engagement on the Internet around the world. Our name ‘1World’ illustrates that we always had the vision to be a global company. And since we’ve launched our 2.0 Platform earlier this year, our service usage, overall traffic, and membership count have been in a hockey stick growth mode. We have achieved a working model providing high-value to web publishers trying to better engage their users and learn more about them, as well as to end-users trying to determine, on almost any particular topic, what do people really think?”
Some recent milestones for 1World including having passed 300 partners and customers using its Software-as-a-Service web publisher system, over one million votes in its popular 1World Poller engagement application, and exceeding 400,000 end-user memberships to its opinion and social research service. The 1World service is also being used in over 200 countries today.
To facilitate its growing list of customers and soon-to-be announced partnerships, 1World is expanding internationally. The 1World Development Center, staffed already in Europe with part of the company’s technical team, is being expanded and a new office has been opened in Setubal, Portugal, which will also be the regional business development and sales office for 1World. The 1World EU Office will handle the entire EMEA (Europe-Middle East-Africa) region for sales and business activities.
In Asia, 1World is working with Defta Partners, a recent investor in 1World, to enter the Japanese market. In China, 1World recently became a portfolio company of Hanhai Investment, and will be leveraging this new relationship to enter the Chinese market later this year. 1World will have offices and operations within and among the respective eco-systems of these partners to serve the Asian region.
Defta Partners and Hanhai Investment are joining 1World’s previous financial backers; this includes, beyond the founders, a dozen prominent Silicon Valley early stage investors, such as Keiretsu Forum and Fifth Era. 1World was started in 2011 in San Jose, CA, began east coast USA operations last year, and is now formally expanding throughout Europe and Asia with local presences.
1World also today announced that it was named a Global 100 Companies to Watch. This is an annual landscape survey by AlwaysOn, winners considered top among its peers and with game-changing approaches that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. 1World was specifically selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz. The winners were selected from among many hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2014 list.
1World and the AlwaysOn Global 100 Companies to Watch will be honored at AlwaysOn’s tenth annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum on July 29th and 30th, 2014. 1World will be at the event demonstrating its solution on July 29th and Mr. Fedosseev will address the entire audience that day as well.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
