How to turn your mobile startup into a global leader in mobile advertising?

 

Mobile advertising is more than just display. It's much more complex than online advertising because it must support diverse devices, multiple platforms, small screens, limited bandwidth, SMS / MMS, rich media and voice. This is what Mark and his team at [a•mo•bee] created – a business servicing the largest advertisers and publishers globally, from the emerging markets in Indonesia and Brazil to the more developed markets of Europe and North America, by delivering a platform and service that successfully supports the unique characteristics of mobile.


Come and hear from our My Story speaker Mark Strecker from his experience as COO of [a•mo•bee], on how he and his team, turned [a•mo•bee] into a global leader in mobile advertising and eventually selling the company to SingTel for $321 Million in March 2012. [a•mo•bee]’s customers include Vodafone, Telefoncia, Sprint, Expedia, Zynga, Barnes and Nobles, eBay, Skype, Nokia, Google and host of other companies. [a•mo•bee] has won a number of awards including World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer and GSMA Mobile Agency of the Year 2012, amongst many others.

Mark’s story will be inspiring not just to founders, entrepreneurs but also to professionals and executives in large companies who are trying to understand the opportunity and challenges in mobile and specifically as it relates to mobile advertising. Join us to hear from this amazingly successful entrepreneurial leader, ask all your questions, learn from his experiences that led up to his success at [a•mo•bee] and connect with other aspiring entrepreneurs at TiE office on Tuesday November 6, 2012.
