Story behind the bttn
Two years ago two guys were sitting at a restaurant terrace in
Helsinki, Finland. They wondered why - in the otherwise ready-made
world - there were no action buttons at the tables, which could be
used to signal waitresses. At the same time, one of them shared his
worry about how he could help his 75 year old mother, living alone in
her house, to make it day-to-day.
One of those guys was Harri, who then started The Button Corporation about a year later. Harri is the kind of guy who is not satisfied with status quo and the normal way of doing things. He was working on application integration already way back when no-one knew what EAI meant, and has brought several products to the market.
Harri summoned an 11 member crack team around him, with the mission of bringing the increasing power of the Internet of Everything to reach everybody's reach. In September 2013 they started making the bttn a reality. First bttns were delivered to customers in December 2014.
"We believe we are truly onto something new here - but we need you to prove it for us. So, I humbly ask you to support us and order a bttn for yourself, and start experiencing the magic of simple internet", says Harri Rautio, CEO, The Button Corporation.
