Global Mobile Internet Conference 2010 – Innovation Show
The Global Mobile Internet Conference – Innovation Show, held in Beijing, China on 28 May 2010, is inviting mobile internet-based startups from around the world to feature their products or services at the show. Organized by the Great Wall Club, the conference is designed for entrepreneurs, executives and influencers in the mobile internet space to understand and capitalize on opportunities on this space, and is expected to attract investors and industry leaders as well.
The focus for this competition is innovation, so startups applying to showcase their wares must communicate clearly how their product or service disrupts the market. Finalists will be judged and given feedback by a team of investors, including Dave McClure of Founders Fund (who will also feature in the upcoming echelon 2010 in Singapore), William Bao Bean of Softbank Holdings, Harry Man of Matrix Partners, Allen Zhu of GSR Ventures and HIKARI TSUSHIN‘s Hirokazu Mashita, amongst others. One company will be chosen as the GMIC Innovation Show Winner.
Applicants must be a mobile internet-based startup that has not received significant VC funding from any part of the world. Ten finalists will each receive three complimentary tickets to the conference (worth US$4,500), but need to travel to Beijing at their own cost. Applicants can fill out and email an application form and a business plan to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 4.
The ten finalists will be announced on April 16.
