Protonet tackles a problem that is quite present this year and in the future: data control. Their solution: a little orange box that runs a software for small companies that does the same things like Dropbox, Skype, project management, calendars, contacts etc. – so practically every basic thing a small company does.
Access is possible through any device and anytime/anywhere and no additional installation is required, making it easy as using cloud service. It’s so simple that it has only one button. Spokesperson of Protonet Philipp Baumgaertel, told us that the idea behind Protonet is to give people the power to own the infrastructure of the Internet. These boxes are built to connect to each other. If you walk through the streets today you will always get Wi-Fi signals from random houses/offices – think about what would be possible, if those routers ran am operating system that let’s the connect and share the resourcesâ€¦ people will be able to own not only the content but also the infrastructure of the internet! And we want to be this operating system said Baumgaertel for Digjitale.
Protonet is a very fast growing business with tripled staff in 6 months and not long ago it announced a crowd funding of $1.2 million from investors, business angels and local innovation funds. Protonet was also one of the top finalists at the Pioneers Festival this year in Vienna, Austria.
