Within seconds, journalists, PR- and marketing experts find useful information and sources. Tame was founded in 2012 by Frederik Fischer, Arno Dirlam and Torsten Müller, with the goal to tame the information overflow on the social web. The company originated as a spin-off of the Humboldt University of Berlin and has gained seed funding from the German Ministry of Technology and Economics, the business development and promotion bank of the Federal Land Berlin and from a successful Crowdinvesting campaign on Companisto.de.

We held our very first (but certainly not last!) #NewTechCrawl last week to celebrate Innovation Month in SF and got to visit innovation where it lives in San Francisco. It was AMAZING! Over 400 people participated throughout the day to crawl the city’s best hotspots for innovation. Needless to say, we had a TON of fun and got to see and meet some amazing people and companies along the way.
See all the amazing photos here!
