Last week, our CEO was one of the speakers at the Business Angels Day in Antwerp. The theme of the day was "Think Global, Invest Local": It goes without saying that a talk about iText was very much on topic: Bruno showed some of iText's customers in the government sector, both in the US and Belgium, explaining how we're working on a good relationship with integrators. We're building an eco-system where iText delivers PDF expertise to integrators, whereas integrators provide manpower to the government.

This question was already answered in one of the first sessions: the conference discussed technical aspects of identity, but was mostly a political conference:...

On October 10, iText was proclaimed the 10th fastest growing technology company in the Benelux and the 3rd fastest growing company in Belgium.
