UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has launched a nationwide search for the country’s most innovative mobile company, with nominations sought from the cream of the UK’s mobile industry.

The competition is open to any UK-based company working in the mobile
industry that can demonstrate a new product or service that has the
potential to change the way people use mobiles across the world.

The winner will be crowned The UK’s Most Innovative Mobile Company at Mobile World Congress 2012 — the industry’s largest exhibition.

“Future growth depends on our ability to generate new ideas that have a
real global reach. The UK has already had an enormous impact on the global
mobile market and this competition aims to highlight the future stars of the
industry," Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, said.

“Mobile World Congress is the event that sets the agenda for the mobile
industry. The finalists and winning company will have the opportunity for
their ideas to gain exposure to the global industry. I wish all of the
companies taking part success.”

Nominations for The UK’s Most Innovative Mobile Company are open now until Wednesday, 14 December 2011. Shortlisted companies will win pitching
support, a place at a media networking event before Mobile World Congress
and global exposure through various media channels.

The finalists will feature at Mobile World Congress where they will present
their company to an expert panel of judges. The UK’s Most Innovative
Mobile Company will be announced on 29 February at Mobile World Congress
2012. The winner will be showcased at a high profile UKTI event during
2012.
