Reaktor POLTE invests in video calling service Tellybean
Like many people we live a long way from home - from the places of our childhood. Love, adventure, work; there are many wonderful reasons for moving. The downside is we are often separated from family and close friends.
We don't see them nearly as often as we'd like.
Enter video calling. Makes sense right? A wonderful idea with so much potential, that can turn into an unfulfilling experience pretty quickly. Most attempts to call home start out bumpy... and go downhill from there. “Can you see me yet?”. Overtones of disappointment. Groans of frustration. Black screens. Confusion.
Ultimately technology triumphs over human endeavour. When the dust settles we are more apart than ever.
So rather than accept this, we’ve decided to go one better. We realise that everyone’s got family, and nearly everyone’s got a TV. So we’re on a mission to make video calling easier, bigger and more accessible to more people than ever before. Natural, lifelike video calling on the biggest screen in the house, the TV.
We’re making a better way to be together when we life forces us apart. And everyone's included. Really.
We call it the new home phone.
We are making the new home phone.
Our video calling solution addresses the primary cost, complexity and accessibility barriers with a simple managed service. We pay special attention to the needs of late-adopting consumers - people who are often unwilling or unable to accept complex technology into their lives. We understand their pain. We all know people like this.
Our solution is affordable, it's simple to install and it's incredibly easy to use. We have a promising go-to-market plan that will support a volume business well into the future. Our service scales nicely too.
Tellybean is based in Helsinki, Finland. We have an experienced, committed and diverse team. We have raised a successful angel round in November 2011, and have recently closed the second investment round in April 2013.
Within this time we have been busy bringing our vision to life, securing key strategic partners and finalizing agreements with our first customers.
Currently we are fully focused on commercializing our service.
