all the prerequisites of being Europe’s leading
Internet portal and access supplier,” said Catherine
Sahlgren, managing director of Euroseek.
Sahlgren said the addition of so many new partners
was because Euroseek had diversified the content
in its portals.
More content, more services, more visitors is a
policy that appears to be working well for the
company which also operates the Swedish Tjohoo
portal, weather service HALO and public information
According to Sahlgren, Euroseek will soon be seeking
more than just content partners. Its future plans include
a number of European acquisitions aimed at reinforcing
its portal and access operations at a local level.
