MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Jan. 19, 2016 - PRLog -- Today, Conteneo Inc. announced that Mark Finnern, founder of Playful Enterprises and former Chief Community Evangelist of the SAP Community Network, has joined Conteneo’s advisory board.

“We are thrilled to have a leader of Mark’s caliber join our advisory board,” said Conteneo CEO & Founder Luke Hohmann. “Our mission is to enable an organization’s employees, stakeholders and customers to effectively and easily collaborate and speed decision-making, whether they are in the same room or across time zones. Mark’s experience in building and nurturing collaborative community networks will be invaluable as we launch the newest evolution of our visual collaboration platform Idea Engine 2.0 to bring the power of multidimensional collaboration to organizations around the world.”

“Community passion is at the heart of collaboration,” said Finnern. “And Conteneo’s focus on multidimensional collaboration is perfectly positioned to enable organizations to tap into that passion. I am delighted to partner with Conteneo to help organizations around the world capitalize on this amazing technology.”

Mark's deep community experience includes founding and managing SAP's community advocacy intiative, the SAP Mentors. He also brought blogging, wikis and unconference-style get-togethers to the SAP Community Network starting in 2003, well before Web 2.0 or Social Media existed. He introduced gamification to the SAP Community Network in 2004 by adding a point system -- the t-shirts awarded for reaching 1/4K points are legendary.

Mark is also a frequent speaker at conferences, including TEDx, where he shared his 5 ideas for bringing our schools into the 21st century. He is also the co-founder and co-host of the Thrivable Future Salon. Through Playful Enterprises, his recently formed boutique consultancy, Mark brings his "magic", social technology for community, to organizations ready to engage their enterprise tribes.

We invite you to meet Mark, the Conteneo team and other technology luminaries at the Collaboration Confab at Microsoft's Silicon Valley Campus in Mountain View, CA, on February 19, 2016. In addition to content from amazing speakers, Conteneo will be launching Idea Engine 2.0.
