GlobalWise to Hold Inaugural Partner Advisory Board Meeting

Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - May 30, 2012) - GlobalWise Investments, Inc. (OTCBB: GWIV) (OTCQB: GWIV) ( and its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, Inc., a leading-edge technology company focused on the design, implementation and management of cloud-based Enterprise Content Management ("ECM") systems in both the public and private sectors, today announces an inaugural Partner Advisory Board meeting is taking place in Columbus, Ohio, from May 29 - May 31.

The Partner Advisory Meeting was established by GlobalWise CEO William J. "BJ" Santiago in order to bring together the various forms of sales distribution into a single location to share best practices for selling ECM software services, as well as to jointly develop future applications and improvements to the software portfolio. With ECM software applications being needed for every industry, and any size business, the concern for channel conflict or sharing of trade secrets between competitors is minimal and actually encouraged for the benefit of all those involved.

"I am excited to be hosting the inaugural Partner Advisory Meeting," stated William J. "BJ" Santiago, CEO of GlobalWise. "Many of our key, strategic Channel Resellers are in attendance for a fantastic event that will be held over a three day period. I see this as an excellent educational forum for our selling partners to get together and learn how each other uses and actively sells our software portfolio. Equally important, our software developers are hearing directly from sales channel partners what the market is asking for so that we are always on the cutting-edge of technology, similar to our migration from premise-based software to an Internet cloud based service delivery model."

Participants at the inaugural meeting include various Channel Partners who actively market ECM solutions directly to business clients. Those Channel Partners include FormFast, ImageSoft, Primary Solutions, MWA Intelligence (MWAi) and many others. These partners cover a wide range of industries throughout the United States, including state and county governments, insurance, healthcare, court systems and educational institutions. With MWAi, the Company has the opportunity to expand beyond North America into the Asian and EMEA markets internationally.

Also attending is Lexmark International, Inc., which has integrated the Intellivue ECM software into their multi-function copiers and printers service offering. Lexmark developed the private-labeled DocMP (Document Management Platform) service that delivers Lexmark clients a multi-function copier and printer embedded with the ECM document management functions provided by Intellinetics' Intellivue software.

"Lexmark is a marquee relationship for GlobalWise and Intellinetics," added Santiago. "By integrating the Intellivue software into an industry-leading hardware manufacturer like Lexmark, we instantly expanded our sales opportunities with a low-cost, private-labeled sales distribution model. Similar to our Channel Distribution model, this hardware integration approach is another method to expand our sales scope for our software products with cost-effective customer acquisition strategies. I think all of our sales distribution partners will enjoy the three day event and will leave with exciting new ways to market ECM solutions."
