In the MoMoTLV local peer awards today, the Israeli representative for the international Mobile Peer Awards contest was chosen: Fring - An award-winning mobile internet community & communication service which enables users to share experiences & remain connected with each other from their mobile device.
The runner-ups were: InnerActive (2nd place) and Cellerium (3rd). You can read more about this at TheMarker (Hebrew).
A bit about the process: A total of 15 companies registered to the contest, 3 of those either dropped out of various reasons or did not meet the requirements. The 12 companies left were pre-screened by a panel of judges, who selected 6 of them. The finalists were: Cellerium, Cellogic, Emoze, Fring, InnerActive and MobiApp. The companies presented in the event today, and the judges voted Fring to be #1.
Thanks to our judges: Yuval Baharav (Sequoia), Ziv Koren (Amdocs), Zvika Rubinstein (Samsung) and Ofer Shmueli (Orange).
We wish Fring luck in the Mobile Peer Awards - see you guys in Barcelona in 2 months!
