This article focuses on Richmond, British Columbia-based EQO Communications, a technology company included in "Red Herring's" top 100 list for 2007. Bill Tam is the chief executive officer (CEO) of the company, which has 30 employees. Is key investors are Ventures West, GrowthWorks, and BDC Venture Capital. EQO Communications brings voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) to the mobile phone, with instant messaging and social networking. EQO users can also track their friends by sharing buddy lists to see who is available to chat by voice or text message. Despite the open market, EQO Communications is having trouble getting users to pay attention to its product. That might give competitors iSkoot or Fring an inroad.
