At GigaOM’s Mobilize LaunchPad on Monday, 10 different startups presented in front of a panel of VCs and our discriminating audience. The companies showed innovative ideas from across the mobile spectrum, from chips to apps to mobile health devices.
The judges — Bob Abbott of Norwest Venture Partners, Tim Lee of Sequoia Capital, Jim Parsons of Silicon Valley Bank and Jack Sheridan of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati — and the audience agreed on the winner: Quantance. The semiconductor company makes a chip that boosts cell phone battery life by boosting the signal the phone delivers to the radio station.
