fring wins MobileMonday community award!

At the Mobile Peer Awards event held yesterday at Barcelona, MoMoTLV's finalist, fring, won the MobileMonday community award in the emerging startups category!

The community award is decided upon by a vote of the dozens of MobileMonday chapters present at the event, and this means that fring got the most votes from chapter organizers worldwide.

Other awards given at the emerging startups category were the jury award which was given to PopCatcher from Sweden and the audience award which was given to Unkasoft Advergaming from Madrid.

In the early stage category, Babajob from Bangalore took both the jury and community awards, and Orbster from Munich took the audience awards.

In the picture: Ofir Leitner, founder of MoMoTLV gives the award to Neal Fullman, International Communications Director at fring.

fring is a finalist at Mobile Peer Awards!

Thanks for all who came to our event yesterday. As announced, fring, the startup we chose at our MoMoTLV Peer Awards event, was chosen as one of 20 finalists that will pitch in the Mobile Peer Awards in Barcelona. This is the first year we are participating in this prestigious contest, and the startup we sent got nominated as a finalist, so these are great news for MoMoTLV and the Israeli mobile industry (See the full finalists list here).

Those of you who are attending the MWC (3GSM), please register to the Mobile Peer Awards event and come to show your support. The event will be held on Monday, Feb. 16 in Barcelona at the Petit Palau at the Palau de la Musica (Note that this is off-site from 3GSM/MWC) starting at 4pm and ending at 8pm. You'll get to hear presentations from 20 startups as well as high-profile keynotes, network with other MoMo-ers from around the world and eventually find out first who are the winners, and even vote for the audience award!

Also, as announced yesterday, we are making a list (with your help!) of everyone who will be in Barcelona for the conference, so that you can see who else is coming and so that we can communicate with you in Barcelona regarding events and parties. We'll also publish the list in several chapters discussion groups so that they know who's coming and network with you. So if you're coming - add yourself to the list.

And finally, pictures from yesterday's event are available in the MoMoTLV January 2009 event gallery. Enjoy...

See you in Barcelona, and good luck to Fring!
