Today, we are happy to be named as a finalist by CTIA Startup Lab for the year 2014. The CTIA Startup Lab is an industry initiative to accelerate growth of seed and growth-stages companies who have been hand-selected by their local communities and investors for their potential to fuel the next wave of growth in mobile.
What makes this nomination very special is that this is our very first recognition since we launched Beta four months ago. Finalists were selected by the CTIA Investor Panel, which is comprised of venture and corporate capital investors such as Blumberg Capital, Caten McGuire, Cooley LLP, Docomo Capital, Ericsson, Fortify Ventures, Honda, Intel Capital, Khosla Ventures, LG Electronics Mobile, mBlox, Orange Labs, Samsung, Sony Growth Ventures and Innovation, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.
To be recognised as the only company from Asia alongside the nominees from across United States and Europe is amazing and a great honour.
While the top three startups will be recognised at the end of the CTIA Startup Lab, all finalists will showcase their products before a panel of industry experts and investors at Super Mobility Week on September 9-11 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
To everyone who have followed, supported and believed in our dream, thank you.
