HELSINKI -- Nexit Ventures, a mobile venture capital firm focused on wireless technologies and services, announced a 4 MEUR investment in Octoshape, the leader in high-quality, large-scale, and cost-effective Internet and mobile media delivery that allows crystal-clear real-time video experience on fixed and mobile networks.

Octoshape's patented Infinite Edge(TM) technology lets users enjoy true HD-quality video regardless of their device or location. It has powered some of the largest live video events ever, including President Obama's inauguration, Michael Jackson's funeral, Eurovision Song Contest and major sporting events such as 2010 Olympics, PGA and NBA.

The CEO and co-founder of Octoshape, Stephen Alstrup, says: "Video is already a key part of the mobile experience and video traffic is expected to account for over 50 % of all mobile data in the next few years. We are happy to have Nexit onboard as their mobile expertise and transatlantic bridge will help us take a leadership role in mobile video delivery."

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
