Meet the GigaOM Mobilize 09 LaunchPad Candidates

Mobilize 09 Sept 10, 2009, San Francisco, CAWith less than a month to go, we’re busy putting the final touches on Mobilize 09, our mobile Internet conference that will be held in San Francisco on Sept. 10. One feature of the event, the Startup LaunchPad, will see 10 mobile-focused startups get up on stage and pitch their products and services to attendees. It gives me a great pleasure to introduce these terrific new companies:

  • Pageonce: Real-time travel management.
  • Metaio: Augmented reality platform for mobiles.
  • Waze: Crowdsourced traffic updates.
  • Toktumi: Second number and PBX on your iPhone.
  • Glympse: Time-controlled location-sharing.
  • Ondeego: Platform and storefront for enterprise apps.
  • Squareconnect: Your mobile as a remote control on steroids
  • LocLe: Location services enabler for social apps.
  • IQ engines: Auto labeling of images.
  • Distimo: Analytics engine for all app storefronts.

If you’d like to meet these startups and other cool companies and thinkers helping to define the next generation of the mobile Internet, sign up for Mobilize 09.

  1. Distimo will be in San Francisco for a few days before and after the event as well if you’re interested in meeting up with the team. Please get in touch with me at mmhull [at] gmail [dot] com if interested.

  2. The Locle Platform team will be in San Francisco for a few days before and after the conference and also down in Los Angeles. If you are interested in meeting up for more detail than possible in the 4 minute LaunchPad presentation, please drop us an email at info [at] locle dot kom (no, not really with a “k”).

  3. I think the Metaio sounds pretty intriguing. Being able to point your camera phone at an object, havint e software recognize that object, and having it overlap a 3D image/character onto whatever is inside your camera screen sounds pretty amazing.
