Then, on Sept 18th, Om Malik and Surj Patel are putting together a pretty good conference on Mobile – Mobilize

GigaOM is looking for twelve of the most promising mobile web startups to strut their stuff at the Mobilize Startup Launchpad. These startups should focus on the emerging technologies upon which the new era of the mobile web will be built. If your startup has the right stuff, get in touch with them. Just keep in mind the following:

  • The idea or product must be good. No J2ME creations of 80s arcade classics, please.
  • The startup or idea must be less than 12 months old.
  • A working product has either been launched or will launch at Mobilize (preference given to latter).
  • Someone from the company must be able to attend the Startup Launchpad ceremony in person.
  • Funding status is immaterial.

Deadline for submission is Wednesday, August 20, 2008 (TODAY). GigaOM will announce the winners by Monday, August 25th.
