Two months ago we received word that Peppe Santoro, Venture Legal Services had been nominated for an Irish Internet Association Net Visionary Award. We were put forward in the category of Best Professional Services Provider. The tagline that the IIA add to the category is “someone who really gets it“. We liked the tagline as it sums up how we try to do business and hopefully this means we have happy clients as a result.
Past winners of Net Visionary Awards have included Jerry Kennelly of Tweak.com, Mark Little (now of Storyful), Michele Neylon of Blacknight, Dylan Collins of Fight My Monster, Jolt (and others) and Eamon Leonard of EngineYard (in 2012) so the award is one of the most significant on the Irish technology scene. A number of our clients and friends were also nominated this year so we felt in good company.
There were two steps to the judging process: an independent adjudication by a panel of judges and a public vote. We couldn’t do anything beyond just doing what we already do to influence the judges’ vote but it seemed to make sense to reach out to clients and others who know the firm well to ask for their support. The response was tremendous and quite humbling. Via email, Twitter and on LinkedIn we got outstanding support and really positive feedback. Many people took the time to cast their vote. To all of them, we are very thankful.
So in summary this is really just a big thank you to everyone who voted. We’ll do our best to keep on delivering fixed fee advice as often as we can and great value always. We wouldn’t be in business were it not for the support and custom of our clients and we will always do our best to serve.
