You heard us! Yasmo Live has been nominated in the Best Mobile Startup category at the Europas, the TechCrunch European startup awards. So vote for us now if you have already experienced the addictive power of our networking app, or read on if you don’t know us, but are ready to be convinced.
The Europas recognise and celebrate the most compelling technology startups and innovations of the past year, and we are definitely up there with the best of them. Twelve months ago, the Yasmo App was little more than an elaborate concept in the mind of its founders, who were living off a tiny grant and their bloated credit cards…nowhere near the serious contenders we are now!
So why do we deserve to win the awards?
First, our application is a visionary solution to conference networking, the missing link between Foursquare and LinkedIn that ensures you will never miss another opportunity at a conference ever again (Seriously? You didn’t know? Get the 2 minute low-down by watching our video)
Second, we’ve blazed ahead in the last twelve months, securing two rounds of angel investment and developing a very slick, fully functional app for iPhone – look for us on iTunes – and J2ME, meaning anyone can use it, as long as they have a java-enabled phone (think BlackBerry, Nokia, HTC, Samsung, Motorola, etc)
And Third, if that hadn’t convinced you yet, we’ve already managed to build a very serious client list of well established event organisers including the Mobile 2.0 committees of Barcelona and Silicon Valley, MobileMonday Global, Avise Partners for the i7 summit and the World Investment Forum and Living Labs Global, with some more biggies in the pipeline.
Winning these awards would be a tremendous recognition of the work we have accomplished so far, and a very powerful marketing tool. Every single vote counts, so please vote for us here and ask your friends, families, followers, colleagues, contacts and whoever else you can think of to do the same!
