BOSTON, October 25, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Following its recent successful launch, social network eegoes continues to impress with its novel approach to online communities and organisation of social data and media. Start up incubator program SwissMedia has selected eegoes as a fast-growing innovative technology businesses which deserves to be recognised and nurtured. This comes at a time when the eegoes team also continues to expand, hiring further developers to continue rolling out new features and functionality.

Social network eegoes, officially launched last month, is pleased to announce its selection for the SwissMedia incubator program for IT and multimedia start ups, as the first ever web start-up included.

Since its launch a few weeks ago, eegoes has been enjoying very positive coverage, both from users as well as social media enthusiasts who have been singing its praises as it seeks to simplify 'social', remove clutter and allow a 'back to basics' approach to networking and sharing online. The vision of founders Guillaume Molter and Al Zane, eegoes aims to arrange the overwhelming amount of data we deal with daily, to focus on 'what matters to you'.

SwissMedia, (Swiss Association of Information Technology and Multimedia), is a professional organization dedicated to supporting SME start ups active in the IT and multimedia sectors, sponsored by the State of Vaud.

In particular SwissMedia provides assistance with economic, business and legal advisory and gives members access to investor networks and business angels. By encouraging shared skills and competence and providing support resources, SwissMedia enables start ups to develop. During this new growth phase, eegoes' European branch and team will relocate to the SwissMedia building in Vevey.

This is the first time SwissMedia has chosen to back a web-based social media start up.

Bernard Degex, Assistant General Secretary of SwissMedia, says he is thrilled about the decision to select eegoes as one of their start ups. "This is our first sponsorship of a social media start up, we normally deal with more traditional business and revenue-making models. With eegoes, we see great potential, an innovative product with a young, creative and dynamic team and we chose based on the interesting proposition and technically excellent product we feel eegoes presents."

Speaking of this achievement, Guillaume Molter, CEO and co-founder of eegoes, says: "Having SwissMedia recognize eegoes makes us very proud. This additional support allows us to continue to rapidly roll out the functionality and applications we are working on."

The eegoes team is also growing again. This young team consists of highly skilled developers from the US, Spain, Portugal, France and Switzerland. The larger team will allow projects to move forward even faster, with a focus on fresh ideas and creativity.

Guillaume explains, "At eegoes, we are determined to be at the forefront of technology. Everyone here is in touch with our end user base, shares a passion for eegoes and is comfortable with all emerging new technology as well as the very latest techniques and applications out there."

As well exciting things happening at eegoes, there has been excitement on the network too as the launch competition came to a close. Ten lucky members won iTunes and Amazon gift vouchers after their posts received top votes and one lucky member won an Apple iPad after simply posting one picture to enter the draw.

Guillaume is looking forward to the next few months as the eegoes team and support network keep growing. "For us the next stage is to continue rolling out new features and improvements, taking on board what our users are saying and as always, keeping the surprises coming for members."
