Networking site Kiltr secures funding
The founders, Brian Hughes Halferty and Stewart Fraser, describe the internet-based media platform as representing a "next-generation niche", with plans of building on Scotland's unique cultural heritage and entrepreneurial spirit.
Kiltr chief executive Halferty said: "Our intention is to assist professionals, companies and organisations to accelerate their success across the globe."
Fraser, chief technology officer, added: "We're both passionate Scotsmen focused on harnessing the power of social networking technology to help shape Scotland's future international success."
Kiltr will provide the technology tools to connect the estimated 100 million Scots and "affinity Scots" across the globe and tap into the knowledge, experience and potential opportunity that exists in this network.
The release of the Kiltr platform is scheduled for March 2010, and interest can be registered at a pre-launch site, www.kiltr.com.
