Mobile Madness Innovation Showcase
Here at Xconomy we love organizing forums and events—in fact our next one, Mobile Madness: The New Future of Computing, is tomorrow. There are only two downsides to putting on events. They’re relatively small (reaching hundreds of people rather than thousands, the way we can online), and pretty soon, they’re over.
To counteract those two facts this time around, we’re pleased to bring you the Mobile Madness Innovation Showcase, an illustrated catalog of many of the companies whose executives will be participating in tomorrow’s forum, plus a few more. The list includes some of the newest and coolest mobile companies in New England, as well as one special guest from way out of town (Ottawa, Ontario-based bitHeads). We’re proud to have sponsorship for this online showcase, as well as the live Mobile Showcase at Mobile Madness along with Apperian, from AT&T.
The descriptions below were supplied by the companies themselves, with slight editing for length. This showcase is meant to be a permanent resource, and we’ll continue to add to it even after Mobile Madness—so if you’d like us to include your New England-based mobile company free of charge, just write to Erin Kutz at firstname.lastname@example.org. (We need your company name, your location, your URL, the year you were founded, a 100-word description, a graphic or screenshot, and—optionally—the names of your investors.)
