Matthieu brings 30 years of experience in driving the development and launch of disruptive technologies to create new market opportunities as well as enhance enterprise product portfolios with emerging technologies. Prior to co-founding Octoblu, Chris was founder of Nodester, an open-source Node.JS PaaS which was acquired by AppFog, and the founder of Teleku, a communications-as-a-service cloud platform which was acquired by Voxeo. Chris was also the founder of Digital Voice Technologies, the creator of the first VoiceXML-powered voice browser, which was acquired by Ideas & Associates.
