Calling All Developers – GSMA Mobile Innovation Global Championship Competition

Calling All Developers – GSMA Mobile Innovation Global Championship Competition


Atlanta hosts the Mobile Innovation Marketplace – a 2 day summit bringing in the thought leaders from around the world as well as giving an opportunity to the application developers to compete in the Mobile Apps Olympics. During the event, GSMA will review 15 pre-selected new technology concepts from around the world from five different innovation categories. One winner will be named from each category and awarded the title of “GSMA Global Semi-Finalist.”

From these five extraordinary ideas, two will be deemed “Mobile Innovation Global Finalists” and will move on to compete against four other Finalists selected from our other international event locations – Macau and Barcelona – for the prestigious title of the “2009 GSMA Mobile Innovation Global Champion”, to be named during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next February.

Submit your entries by April 25th. It will be a great recognition, will create some good PR, and open up some profitable doors.
