CHICAGO, IL – 11-27-2018 ( — Voting was open to all 800 attendees of the FUND Conference

Cliqueshare, Inc., provider of the same-named cloud-based visual communication and collaboration platform, is proud to announce the honor of being voted as a top 10 winner selected among all new businesses exhibiting at the 2018 FUND Conference in Chicago. Cliqueshare met with attendees and discussed the common problems companies and organizations are experiencing today and how a well-designed platform can not only eliminate the challenges of using visuals in business communication while also enhancing client relationships and engagement through the use of imagery and videos.

“We are both honored by this recognition and appreciative of everyone who voted for us,” said Jason Schoepke, Chief Product Officer of Cliqueshare. When asked about their representation at the conference, RJ Pahura, Founder of FUND Conference, responded, “Cliqueshare was a standout exhibitor at FUND Conference in Chicago. Their team was recognized as a top 10 overall company through attendee voting in the FUNDConf mobile app. Cliqueshare’s private collaboration platform provides an innovative solution for visual business communication. We look forward to supporting Cliqueshare’s growth as they continue to scale.”

Today, companies are not only concerned about the abuse of their data and files when using applications but are also challenged by the increased demand of employees and clients to utilize photos and videos in communication. When asked about the response to their platform by businesses Schoepke noted, “As we conduct research with additional business managers and employees, we continue to receive affirmation on the viability and interest by businesses and organizations to increase their usage of photos and videos, in a controlled and managed environment.” 

Early-Stage Chicago Business

While Silicon Valley and New York City get the bulk of start-up attention, many Chicago start-ups are also rich in culture and engrained in the Midwest hard work ethic, while also historically providing investors with some of the highest modern returns of any start-up hub*. 

Cliqueshare was founded by three partners, each raised in one of these markets, and are now together in the Midwest building a business they are passionate about. Cliqueshare was started in October 2018 and the team has self-funded and bootstrapped the business for the first year. The company recently reported in Crunchbase they raised a seed round investment in September. The leadership team is open to talking with additional partners who both are a good fit to the team culture and are passionate about the vision they share for Cliqueshare.
