Mingle360 Wins Award at Government Technology Research Alliance (GTRA) Symposium


June, 7th – 9th 2009
Hot Springs, VA


GTRA - Government Technology Research Alliance

Fairfax VA based Mingle360 wins Best Live Demonstration Award at the Government Technology Research Alliance (GTRA) Symposium held in Hot Springs, VA from June 7th to June 9th. The three day conference brings together top executives across various government agencies including the FBI, Department of Defense (DoD), HUD, GSA, Department of Justice (DOJ), Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and more. All attendees received a MingleStick that allowed for attendee and solution provider networking at the event. One click connections created a fun networking environment at the event and the electronic business card exchange with profile pictures facilitated more efficient post-event follow up.

Mingle360 has a strategic partnership with UCSA International Inc. to bring the MingleStick technology to government agencies. UCSA is a business development networking brokerage firm that offers business development consulting services using 21st century information and communication technology. Their extensive list of clients extends across the government and commercial sectors.

“Evidenced by the award, our MingleStick technology was well received by the government executives and senior level security experts,” says Dan Coffing, CEO of Mingle360. “Many secure applications and uses can be developed using our MingleStick technology. We look forward to exploring these opportunities with the various government agencies.”

The patent-pending MingleStick device is extremely unique because two people can connect with each other without disclosing personal information. No personally identifiable information is exchanged between two physical MingleSticks. An ID number is exchanged which references a website for further information (including profile and contact information). The user has granular controls on the website for disclosing their information, thus making the overall Mingle360 solution very safe and secure to use.

“GTRA senior government technology executives are always looking for new solutions that meet privacy standards,” said Kelly Yocum, Executive Director, GTRA. “The MingleStick provided an impressive secure contact sharing tool that deserved the award they were given.”
