CHICAGO, Dec. 5, 2012

CHICAGO, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Terranova Inc., a Chicago-based
technology company, today announced that it has secured seed funding and
technology support from undisclosed sources totaling $1.05 million. The
company will use the contributions to launch an intelligent personal assistant
app for iPhone and Android devices, the web, and Google Glass.

Terranova allows users to speak or type what they want to do – e.g., "join a
yoga class" – and connects them with the nearest, most relevant people,
places, and events. A user who wants to learn yoga might be matched with
nearby yoga studios, highly rated yoga instructors, others who have expressed
the same intention, a local yoga-clothing store, and an artisan that makes
custom yoga mats.

The app uses a natural language user interface and is powered by a contextual,
computationally efficient learning algorithm. Unlike Apple's Siri or Google
Now – which search the web and/or integrate other applications to answer user
questions – Terranova aggregates information about real-world activities and
connects users with relevant people, places, and events based on what they
want to do.

Terranova was founded by George Stoikos and Andy Stankiewicz. Stoikos, who
serves as CEO, has 20-years experience developing large-scale,
enterprise-level database & distributed applications across multiple
industries. He has received multiple patents around the world for his work.
Stankiewicz is a 20-year technology marketing executive with a track record of
helping build companies in leadership roles, including chief marketing
officer.   

Terranova will launch a private beta program for its iPhone, Android, and web
app in early 2013.
