Innovative technology company Horizon State recently announced its return to the marketplace, with new ownership and management. According to an October 31 press release, Timothy Goggin is the firm’s new Chief Executive Officer.
Horizon State burst onto the technology scene in the latter part of 2017, with an innovative blockchain-powered voting and decision-making platform. The company’s platform has been used in successful test case elections in South Australia and New Zealand.
The company ceased operations last August, and its owners subsequently sold its intellectual property and assets to a group of Horizon State community members. The new owners have relaunched the company under new management, while retaining a number of Horizon State’s former employees to help ensure a successful relaunch of the firm.
According to Goggin:
“There are endless use cases for Horizon State’s platform for any organisation that wants to boost stakeholder engagement and streamline decision-making processes. The difference with our solution is that we can help organisations create these new efficiencies that reduce time and cost burdens via an online process that is transparent, trusted and verifiable.”
Goggin noted that the company’s initial goals are to relaunch the platform, reengage with former and potential clients, and expand Horizon State’s visibility and business opportunities. He also confirmed that the company will not be supporting the old Decision (HST) token but will find other ways to reward its community members, including the possible creation of a new token and token economy.
